BeCause & Effect #73: Niigaan Sinclair


Niigaan Sinclair is an Anishinaabe author, educator, columnist, and academic based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A leading voice in Indigenous teachings and knowledge, Niigaan is an incredible resource when it comes to maintaining Indigenous stories, languages, and general information.

I sat down with Niigaan Sinclair to talk about his work as a professor and columnist, what we can learn from Indigenous ways of knowing, and how to have the difficult conversations that need to happen for reconciliation to take place.

This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Niigaan.
