LISTEN TO THE LATEST EPISODES OF OUR PODCASTS
In this episode of Red Man Laughing we take a look at the collision between the Indian Act & reconciliation and we investigate the question whether reconciliation is possible with the Indian Act in place in Canada. We look at the history, intention & fallout of the Indian Act & we ask the essential question - how in the hell do we get rid of the Indian Act?
In Season 3 Episode 6 of otipêyimsiw-iskwêwak kihci-kîsikohk, Métis in Space, Molly, Chelsea, and special guest, Erica “onaskwaw-sâkitêyanîw” Violet Lee, review Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning, where "Set in 19th Century Canada, Brigette and her sister Ginger take refuge in a Traders' Fort which later becomes under siege by some savage werewolves."
The Dechinta Land & Medicine Stories podcast mini-series was recorded over a 3 day workshop period at Blatchford Lake in Chief Drygeese Territory at Dechinta Bush University in June 2015.
In this conversation, Tanya Tagaq offers an honest reflection to being an established recording artist today. She speaks about her relationship with her incredible band, her ideas surrounding being a mother and a touring artist, ways in which she practices self care and she shares her views on reconciliation and the important role that art plays in society. Tanya also speaks about her past collaborations and relationship with artist Laakkuluk Williamson-Bathory, who Tanya is the respondent artist for in the #callresponse project.
In this special episode of Ryan McMahon Gets Angry (in partnership with Red Man Laughing) we are treated to a rant by Ryan on his thoughts around reconciliation - what it is & what it isn't in his mind, what the pathway forward does/doesn't look like and who's on the hook for all the heavy lifting that will be required to move forward in Canada.
THE WHO. WHAT. WHERE. WHEN. WHY. HOW.
Indian & Cowboy is an independent, listener supported, Indigenous podcast network that creates, produces & publishes Indigenous audio projects across multiple platforms on the internet & broadcast media.
We are rooted firmly at the intersection between digital media art, podcasting & Indigenous Storytelling.
We aim to disrupt, engage & empower.
We launched Indian & Cowboy on Oct. 6th, 2014.
Currently (January 2016), we're producing 5 podcast original series'. By the end of 2016 we hope to double this, and produce 10 original podcast series'.
2016 is all about development for us. We are focused on developing new shows, building audiences & looking for more opportunities in the digital media space for our content to land.
Eventually, in the long run, our aim is to grow to be much more than a podcast network as we've got a number of projects, scripts, series & films in development.
Our 18 month beta-period ends on April 6, 2016.
After our beta period, we will take inventory of our successes & failures, will look at the data, crunch the numbers and we'll look to chart a path forward for Indian & Cowboy.
Through 2016, we will be creating, developing & producing a number of video/film projects for internet distribution AND we're exploring partnerships for traditional broadcasting mediums throughout the year.
