Unceded Airwaves Episode October 12, 2016

S2E1 - Musqueam Territory, Decolonizing Violence and Breakout West Aboriginal Artists

1:03pm - 2:00pm

This is our first episode of the season! We talk about the Musqueam territory that CiTR broadcasts from, the recent attacks on campus and consent culture and feature Breakout West Aboriginal artists! This episode contains sensitive content, and may not be appropriate for all listeners.

The Indigenous Collective wants to start off the season by focusing on the territory which we broadcast from. We speak with Larry Grant at the Musqueam band office about what it means to be on unceded Musqueam land. Sarah Hunt and Lucia Lorenzi speak about a recent attack on campus, and how we can move toward decolonizing violence and move toward a consent culture on campus.

We hear music from David Morin, a Metis Native American Vancouver based musician, nominated for Aboriginal and Urban artist of the Year at this week's Break Out West 2016 Western Canadian Music Awards. We also hear music from William Prince, a singer song writer from Winnepeg, Manitoba and the Peguis First Nation, also nominated for Aboriginal artist of the year and roots solo artist of the year.

Unceded Airwaves is put together every week by UBC's Indigenous Radio Collective, and we are committed to centering the voices of Native people and offering alternative narratives that empower Native people and their stories.
