CBC Vancouver is launching a new Indigenous column Reconcile This on Wednesday, September 27.
The stories will be available online through CBC News British Columbia, CBC News Indigenous, and will also air across the province on CBC Radio One's morning shows: Daybreak Kamloops, Daybreak North, Daybreak South, and On The Island.
Columnist Angela Sterritt will tackle Indigenous affairs and take listeners through communities as they face struggles, confront inequality and build resilience.
During the first segment, Sterritt will explore Indigenous relationships with B.C.'s education system and follow a story where derogatory terms were included in educational materials used in secondary school classrooms.
