EP 04 Taking a Look Into Indigenous Athletetics

By Siobhan Laverdiere

This podcast series, created by the Halton Youth Initiative, is designed to share some Indigenous truth as one of the next steps in the journey towards truth and reconciliation in Canada. We will be discussing topics which lead to learning about the indigenous community and learning how Canada can do better in supporting them. We want to share our knowledge and spread awareness of the issues faced by indigenous communities and raise up Indigenous voices.

In this episode of Halton Youth Shares Indigenous Truth the host Julia speaks with 3 members of the Halton Youth initiative: Angela, Ashley, and Nishita. They speak about how they have been responding to the call to action #87 surrounding indigenous athletes. This episode gives listeners more insight into the world of sports for indigenous athletes and of the importance of focusing on such topics.
