Eighth Fire – modeling dynamic cross-cultural dialogue

If you haven’t yet had the chance to take in CBC’s well-produced documentary series, “Eighth Fire,” I’d highly recommend watching its most recent installment, “Indigenous in the City.” With engaging host Wab Kinew facilitating, the episode takes a fascinating look at the realities of urban life, where Indigenous and non-Indigenous people are living in close proximity in greater and greater numbers. This series is tremendously exciting because it provides viewers of all cultures with a focused look at various aspects of the lives of Indigenous people in Canada. Kinew talks with elders, digital artists, scholars, and rappers, all of whom weigh in on “reconciliation” as a concept and a lived reality.
