Indigenous students launch new podcasts, YouTube series

July 29, 2020
Students and staff have launched new content channels – including a podcast and YouTube – in the past two weeks. At MacEwan University, Director of Indigenous initiatives and kihêw waciston Terri Sunjens and Assistant Professor of Social Work Amber Dion launched a new podcast called 2 Crees in a Pod. The podcast aims to “honour, recognize, and amplify Indigenous voices in social work and beyond,” and was built to serve as both a resource to social work students in Dion’s Advanced Practice with Indigenous Peoples course and as an opportunity for anyone interested in learning. In Hamilton, Ontario, Ohneganos – a McMaster University and Six Nations Global Water Futures research project – launched a new series on YouTube called “Ohneganos: Let’s Talk Water.” The seven-week series sees McMaster student Makasa Looking Horse speak with inspirational Indigenous youth leaders from across the globe and with researchers, artists, knowledge holders, and community members from Six Nations.
