minogondaagan: the good voice

Episode 1: Reconciliation In Literature

On this episode, we speak with some the indige­nous lit­er­ary world’s strongest voic­es. We pose the ques­tion — has rec­on­cil­i­a­tion hap­pened in books? Has it hap­pened with­in the lives of the authors?

The episode clos­es with DJ Shubs song Indomitable”, fea­tur­ing the North­ern Cree Singers, and can be found on his EP Pow­Wow­Step.

Our open­ing and clos­ing theme music comes to us cour­tesy of Boogey The Beat — check out more of his bril­liant work at sound​cloud​.com/​b​o​o​g​e​y​t​h​ebeat. The inter­sti­tial music is cour­tesy of Bloom — you can hear more of their songs at bloom14​.band​camp​.com.
