Episode 5 - National Indigenous History Month Book Panel
Welcome to another episode of Stack Attack - the PEI Public Library Service's podcast. In this episode, we are hosting our first Stack Attach Book Panel. With June being National Indigenous History and the current discovery of unmarked graves on former residential school sites across the County, Canadians are searching for opportunities to re-educate themselves – to learn about the history of residential schools and how to become better allies on the road to reconciliation. In order to help Islanders find books and resources relating to this topic, we have assembled the first Stack Attack book panel. Panelist #1: Nora McCarthy Joyce Nora works at the PEI Department of Health and Wellness (Policy and Planning), is a mom of 3, avid reader and nature dweller, has a super dog (greyhound named Bear who provides Therapy to all those around her) and has a keen interest in the health and social dimensions of our collective wellness. Panelist #2: Neil Forbes Neil is a band member of Saddle Lake Cree Nation and was born and raised in Summerside PEI, where he now lives his wife, Wendy, three-year-old daughter, Lotty, and cat, Willy. Neil is the Network Coordinator for the Wabanaki-Labrador Indigenous Health Research Network at Dalhousie and is in the Second Year of his Ph.D. at UNB. Panelist #3: Roseanne Gauthier Roseanne is a white settler living in Mi'kma'ki, the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq. She has been the Youth Services Librarian for the PEI Public Library Service since 2014. Roseanne is passionate about the importance of all children seeing themselves reflected in the materials found on the shelves of their local library and the power of stories to start conversations about anti-racism, injustice, and reconciliation.
