Minogondaagan is about reconciliation. Throughout the series, Indigenous and non-Indigenous people will share personal stories, ideas, research and expertise, and to create a new story together as we walk toward reconciliation. We have produced this podcast in partnership with the University of Manitoba’s Office of Indigenous Engagement with assistance from the Community Radio Fund of Canada and the University of Manitoba Student’s Union. Each episode attempts to explore a theme, engaging in discussions that seek a common experience that will start to bring us to a place of understanding.
Minogondaagan is a safe and respectful space for everyone to speak and for all to listen and learn.
