Tanya Talaga: 7 Fallen Feathers and Massey Lecture Series
This book needs to be read by all Canadians.
All of Canada needs to to understand the tragedy and injustices of the residential school system, and to understand why it is so critical that remote First Nations have good schools in their own communities.
All Canadian children deserve the right to live at home, with their families, and to be safe while they go to school.
Tanya has been given the honor of being asked to do all five of the 2018 Massey Lecture Series.
"The lectures are named in honour of Vincent Massey, the first Canadian-born Governor General of Canada. Since their creation by the CBC in 1961, the Massey Lectures have established their place as a Canadian institution and become an annual highlight of our cultural life. The five talks provide a forum on radio where contemporary thinkers can explore important issues of our time.
Former speakers include Martin Luther King Jr., Margaret Atwood and Stephen Lewis. These days, the lecturers are all Canadian, and the series is recorded on a cross-Canada tour. The book of the Massey Lectures is published by House of Anansi Press." CBC
