Privileging Indigenous Oral Traditions Past, Present, and Future
Dr. Mukwa Musayett, Frances Maddalozzo, Chuying Jiao, Harsimran Kaur Grewal, and Marion Erickson
This podcast series is produced by four Master of Education at Thompson Rivers University who felt inspired to give back after taking Dr. Mukwa Musayett's (Shelly Johnson) International Indigenous Research course in May of 2021. These four students wanted to continue the learning process and come as learners as they engaged in this podcast project.
Realizing that podcast can be a means for academic scholarship that privileges the voices of Indigenous scholars, knowledge holders, politicians and academic trail blazers. The diversity of this group is what allows for this intercultural understanding. The podcast team consists of the following four M.Ed. Candidates positioning themselves as: an Indigenous Dakelh midwifery researcher, Chinese International Social Worker, a South East Asian Sikh International student and educator, and a second-generation Filipina Canadian Catholic educator.
Our mantra, "We come as learners, we come to listen."
This podcast is a culturally safe environment as we attempt to privilege the voices of Indigenous people. We are here to listen attentively to the Indigenous oral traditions of the past, present, and future. Building intercultural understanding is key towards Reconciliation. All are welcome in this podcasting space.
