This weeks episode centers around the events that bring the Indigenous people from the late 1800's into the modern time. The focus includes economic enterprises that the Indigenous people could engage in, the movement from the reservation to the cities and factors that pushed and pulled people off the reservations. Inherent here are conversations about resource extraction, changing gender roles imparted by the colonizers and how women were impacted by the Indian Act.
**Correction from the episode transcript: as of February, 2022 the CBC reported more than 1000 arrests related to the Fairy Creek Blockades.***
