On today's episode of Teachin' Books, undergraduate student Taylor Brown shares her experiences working as a tour guide while she was also reading and thinking through Thomas King's 2012 non-fiction work The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America.
Topics from our chat include: being subversive despite/versus the constraints and norms of a profession; navigating Canada's history and geography as a settler tour guide in a position of authority; and the realities and difficulties of blending history, education, story, and entertainment. Plus, hear me struggle to find the right words to talk about the youths!
