Satin Denny, Richelle Dubois, Gaylene Henry, and Robyn Pitawanakwat at Camp: Justice for our Stolen Children

This week I had the tremendous pleasure of sitting down in Regina, Saskatchewan with four of the women at Camp: Justice for Our Stolen Children.  Robyn Pitawanakwat, Richelle Dubois, Satin Denny, and Gaylene Henry, along with their communities, are working  to bring attention to the injustices facing Indigenous families in Canada, who are losing their children to violence, an unjust legal system, and child protective services. In this episode, they talk about the work the camp is doing, and why, in the wake of Raymond Cormier’s and Gerald Stanley’s acquittals, they’re demanding justice.

 

The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here. Robyn, Richelle, Satin, and Gaylene’s theme song is “That’s Alright” by Laura Mvula and please promise me you will go watch the video RIGHT NOW.

Secret Feminist Agenda is recorded on the traditional and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. This episode was also recorded on Treaty 4 Territory, the traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota, Lakota and Dakota peoples, and is the homeland of the Métis people.
