Ahkameyimok Podcast with Perry Bellegarde

New Green Party Leader - Annamie Paul

October 15, 2020

Almost the first words in new Green Party leader Annamie Paul's victory speech, spoke of solidarity with Canada's First Nations:

"As the descendant of the black diaspora who has suffered its own history of oppression and colonialism, I will always stand with indigenous peoples and their calls to action, and their calls to justice and their fight for self-determination and sovereignty.”

In this episode of the Ahkameyimok Podcast, Canada's first black and first Jewish female party leader joins Chief Perry Bellegarde to discuss why she believes First Nations causes are so important, ways to tackle systemic racism, and why social policies are just as important to the Green party as environmental ones.

A big thanks goes out to the Red Dog Singers of Treaty 4 Territory in Saskatchewan for our theme music.
