Auntie Up! is a celebration of Indigenous women talking about the important s***. Aunties can be counted on to speak their truth without the sugar-coating. They will tell you straight up what you need to know and they aren’t afraid to mince words. It is an unfiltered conversation into the Indigenous world view -- or at least the Auntie world view.
Auntie Up! returns for season two. The aunties discuss intergenerational strength through blood memory.

It used to be called crabs in a bucket syndrome -- once one is climbing up and out, the others try to pull them back down. Why do we try and keep those who rise down? How do we address lateral violence with lateral kindness?
Ep 6: Beading a Political Statement
Beaded earrings are a visual reminder that we are still here and will not be assimilated. Every piece is a statement of our resistance. We’ll look at how beading has become an act of resistance and how it still is a part of trade and commerce.
