In conversation with Georgina Riel {Pandemic Pedagogy convo 41} Imagining a New ‘We’

How do we teach history in this moment and others? In this conversation, I speak with Georgina Riel/Waabishki Mukwa Kwe, an Ojibway educational consultant and artist, about how can get  caught in language and to reaffirm colonial ideas of history, the past, and people in ways we didn’t realize. In particular, we talk about the idea of “artifacts” when teaching Canadian history, especially in relation to teaching about indigenous people, and how “artifacts” insinuate a dead culture.
