Red Man Laughing - Ovide Mercredi Talks Treaty & A Pathway Forward
In this episode of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we take you back to beautiful Ft. Qu'Appelle, SK for the Treaty 1-11 Gathering for a keynote that was delivered by outgoing Treaty 1-11 Movement National spokesperson, Ovide Mercredi.
"The future of our communities, the Youth, they will elevate the conversations we have with this country called Canada." They will do it with the power of of the mind and of the spirit. They will do it as spiritual people and as academics. This is the prophecy. The is the prophecy coming alive." OVIDE MERCREDI
In this keynote we hear about the beginnings of the Treaty Gathering movement and how it came to be and Ovide breaks down a number of historical moments in the Treaty movements history. Ovide digs deep into the history of the movement, but maybe more importantly, he informs us of decades of work that has happened quietly and humbly on behalf of the movement.
This is an important keynote - it is critical, it is inspirational and it is historical. This is a must listen if you're interested in, committed to or just learning about the Treaty movement on Turtle Island.
