NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh: The Best of Ahkameyimok - The Political Interviews

September 15, 2021


***This interview with federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh was originally aired on March 3rd, 2021***

***With the Akhameyimok Podcast on hiatus and a federal election underway, we are re-running National Chief Bellegarde's best interviews from the past year with leaders and senior members of the main federal political parties to help provide a sense of where they stand on issues important to First Nations and Indigenous people. ****

Jagmeet Singh, leader of the federal New Democratic Party and Perry Bellegarde discuss the pandemic, what drew him into politics, overcoming systemic racism, the upcoming election, the importance of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the environment, and also how the Sikh practice of Chardi Kala shares much in common with the perseverance message of Ahkameyimok.

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

The Ahkameyimok Podcast is produced by David McGuffin of Explore Podcast Productions.
