At The Edge Of Canada: Indigenous Research

Today our guests are Hai­da jour­nal­ist John Med­i­cine Horse Kel­ly, Adjunct Research Pro­fes­sor in the School of Jour­nal­ism and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion at Car­leton Uni­ver­si­ty, and set­tler schol­ar Dr. Miran­da Brady, Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor in the School of Jour­nal­ism and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion at Car­leton Uni­ver­si­ty. We dis­cuss their lat­est book pub­lished via UBC Press: We Inter­rupt This Pro­gram: Indige­nous Media Tac­tics in Cana­di­an Cul­ture. Brady and Kel­ly take as their guid­ing notion reme­di­a­tion” in a the­o­ret­i­cal sense, or the ways Indige­nous jour­nal­ists, artists, film­mak­ers, and pub­lic com­menters are tak­ing hold of the main­stream media cycle and its inher­ent trap­pings and defi­cien­cies when it come to Indige­nous sto­ries. A sin­cere­ly dif­fi­cult project to tack­le in the dig­i­tal age, espe­cial­ly one where Indige­nous folks are ever-present on social media, in the news, and cre­at­ing and dis­trib­ut­ing con­tem­po­rary art. We talk about social medi­a’s role in reme­di­a­tion, diver­si­ty in the news room, Indige­nous run and sup­port­ed media enti­ties, the folks who led the way first and men­tor­ing the next wave. It was the first attempt at a con­fer­ence call and a great show to kick-off Indige­nous Aware­ness Month at UManitoba.
