    Introducing Pretendians by Candaland

    Please enjoy the first episode of Candaland's Prendians. To hear more, follow Pretendians on your podcast app. More about the episode: Why do people pretend to be Native? Hosts Robert Jago (Kwantlen First Nation and Nooksack Indian Tribe) Angel Ellis (Muscogee (Creek) Nation) begin their journey by asking someone who has been doing just that. He’s not just your average imposter – "Grand Chief" Guillaume Carle is the king of the “pretendians", a French Canadian who made a small fortune creating his own fake First Nation and issuing phony Indian Status Cards to thousands of other identity thieves.

    Introducing “Stolen: Surviving St. Michael’s”

    Introducing “Stolen: Surviving St. Michael’s”

    Episode 1: The Police Officer and the Priest: One night back in the late 1970s, an officer in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police pulled over a suspected drunk driver. When he walked up to the vehicle, he came face-to-face with a ghost from his past: a residential school priest. That officer was journalist Connie Walker’s late father. What happened that night on the side of the road compelled her to return home to Saskatchewan nearly 40 years later to try to investigate a secret in her own family. What she uncovers is a much bigger story.

Great presentation and research

Good production, interesting topics explained clearly. Why didn’t I learn anything about these topics in American high school?

I wish this were required listening in all schools!

Thank you so much for doing this Rebecca. I am learning so much. This podcast should be required listening in every school in America and Canada too and the whole world. It’s clear that you have put tons of good work into this. It’s so well done and informative. Heart-breakingly so. I have only 4 episodes left to listen to.

Incredible

As US citizens, it is imperative we understand the history of the indigenous people that were here long before our ancestors decided to show up. We aren’t taught these things in school, unfortunately, and we have to educate ourselves. Thankfully, this podcast helps with that, and it does it in a beautiful way. Take the time to listen, it’s worth it.
