“We Need to Talk about Bryce” Podcast
Each monthly episode is led by Bobby Henry, a member of the Cayuga Nation, from Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Bobby is an Assistant Professor in Brock University’s Faculty of Education and a PhD candidate at Trent University in Indigenous Studies. This podcast features leading Indigenous educators, public health experts, and knowledge keepers. These conversations stem from excerpts from Dr. Peter Bryce’s 1922 pamphlet, The Story of a National Crime, and draw connections across historical and contemporary standpoints.
