Karyn Pugliese hosts canadaLANDBACK, with award-winning producer Kim Wheeler. Together, they explore three generations of resistance.
Starting with the 80-year reclamation movement at Stoney Point, which led to a violent assault on unarmed people, and the police killing of Dudley George, the podcast asks: why have land actions become necessary? Why have violations of human rights become normalized? Where will this lead us as a country?
The all-Indigenous team of award-winning reporters asks Canada if reconciliation is dead, or if there’s hope. Telling stories through documentary reports, interviews and panel conversations, canadaLANDBACK unpacks the divide between Indigenous nations and Canada, and explains why today’s youth may be the last generation Canada can negotiate with.
