University of Victoria Podcast on Indigenous Perspectives

The University of Victoria Libraries in British Columbia have launched a new podcast series entitled Taapwaywin: Talking about what we know and what we believe.

"Hosted by Associate University Librarian – Reconciliation Ry Moran, Taapwaywin features conversations with Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Survivors, academics, artists, activists and community leaders about the role truth-telling can play in societal healing (...)"

"Moran’s path to produce this podcast builds on decades of work. From his recent role as the founding director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation prior to his arrival at UVic, to statement-gathering work with the TRC [Truth and Reconciliation Commission], and the important efforts to honour and remember the children who never returned from the residential schools, Moran has listened to thousands of hours of residential school Survivor statements. These hard and often devastating truths—and the teachings contained within the work of the TRC—have shaped Moran’s perspectives on what Canada is, and the change that’s necessary. "
