Hi Michael,
Great podcast! I only found it today but I’ve already downloaded a couple more episodes I will listen to.
What shocked me about this interview is how political leaders who obviously do not respect indigenous people’s rights at all are still being voted in such positions and there is no news coverage about this on the other side of the great pond..! Staggering.

Originally, I found your website while researching for my MA thesis on local intermediaries (voyageurs/indigenous guides) in Arctic exploration in Canada, which I am still writing.
All the best and keep up the good work,

University of Bern
