Douglas Cardinal on how Indigenous teachings can be the foundation for our cities; the tricky business of standardizing a vaccine passport for a post-pandemic world; and unpacking and tackling intergenerational trauma among Indigenous communities
Douglas Cardinal and Wanda Dalla Costa are among seven Indigenous architects featured in a new documentary, From Earth to Sky, about the power of Indigenous architecture. They join us to discuss how Indigenous teachings can be the foundation for replanning and redesigning our cities.
Plus, are you hoping to travel and take in everything your destination has to offer? That may depend on what vaccine you had, and where you're planning to go. We discuss the tricky business of standardizing a vaccine passport for a post-pandemic world with Dr. Gerald Evans, infectious disease specialist at Queen's University, and Prof. Kelley Lee, Canada Research Chair in Global Health Governance at Simon Fraser University.
And the impact of government policies toward Indigenous people has been passed down through generations. We unpack intergenerational trauma and how Indigenous researchers are building strategies to tackle it with Amy Bombay, assistant professor in the department of psychiatry and the School of Nursing at Dalhousie University; and Kelsie Kilawna, a Syilx and Secwépemc journalist with IndigiNews and a contributor to the CBC.
