Talking Thesis: A podcast
This podcast (links to podcast episodes below) emerged from a collaborative project in western Newfoundland that highlights university-community research relationships between Grenfell Campus, Memorial University in Corner Brook and the Mi'kmaw community of Flat Bay in the Bay St. George region. Set as a conversational discussion over a cup of tea, presenters Brady Reid, Elder Calvin White, and Kelly Anne Butler mix personal stories with lessons learned from the project as the conversation develops. Topics discussed include some history of Mi'kmaq in western Newfoundland, the establishment and registration process of the Qalipu Mi'kmaq First Nation, challenges faced by the community of Flat Bay and the Flat Bay Mi'kmaq Band, and important considerations and responsibilities for researchers working with Indigenous communities. Production credits follow at bottom.
