The Bad + Bitchy Podcast is recorded on the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin and Anishinaabe people.
Since Bad + Bitchy began over four years ago, we have worked to better educate ourselves about the Indigenous experience in what we call Canada by featuring Indigenous issues and voices. The work, of course, is never done and we look forward to continuing to learn about the history, traditions, and values of Canada’s Indigenous communities.
Today we want to share some of the things we’re reading about reconciliation, past episodes that feature Indigenous voices, old Hill Times columns, and other things we think might be valuable in your continued education.
