Show Notes

This week we welcome social activist and public speaker, Patty Krawec. Patty is an Anishinaabe woman of the Lac Seul First Nation. She hosts (along with Kerry Goring) the podcast Medicine for the Resistance—which looks at the similar experiences of Indigenous and black lives. 

Patty also uses social media to speak about Indigenous realities in Canada and the United States. For many Indigenous peoples, social media has changed how families and friends interact with each other. Not surprisingly, Patty shares some fascinating insights.

What should everyone know about #NativeTwitter and Indigenous social media?

How does social media affect self-sovereign identities in an Indigenous context?

How important is it for Indigenous communities to own their digital identities?

Join us as we further examine social media’s benefits and challenges.
