Exploring the idea of "masculindians"

masculindians cover.jpgTonight in Ottawa, a Queen's professor launches his new book entitled Masculindians: Conversations about Indigenous Manhood. Sam McKegney sat down with 22 indigenous writers, artists, elders and activists to talk about masculinity. He met them at coffeeshops, in their kitchens, and one conversation even happened in a car barrelling along the 401.

 

One of people McKegney spoke with was Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, who is from Chippewas of Nawash First Nation. She and McKegney met up on a park bench near her home territory in Southwestern Ontario to talk about raising 3 young boys. Both Akiwenzie-Damm and McKegney joined us in studio to share some of their conversation.
