In this episode, listen as IBPOC Network Coordinator Jazmin Hundal and Indigenous Education Programmer Nicole Priessl chat while on location at Burnaby Village Museum.

They discuss the work Nicole has done to transform the Indigenous spaces at the museum, including the Cedar Grove, Matriarch’s Garden, and Indigenous Learning House.

Jazmin and Nicole also chat about the value of intersectional storytelling and representation in heritage sites, the power dynamics that come into play when determining what counts as history, and the incredible importance of including contemporary Indigenous stories in combatting harmful colonial myths.
