Thunder Bay, Ontario - October 7, 2018  (LSN) Prize-winning journalist Tanya Talaga (Seven Fallen Feathers) explores the legacy of cultural genocide against Indigenous peoples- in Canada and elsewhere- in her 2018 CBC Massey Lectures—All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward.

For Tanya Talaga, that cultural genocide has led to a forced disconnection from land and language by Indigenous peoples. The need now, she says, is for Indigenous self-determination in social, cultural and political arenas. And many communities, in Canada and abroad, are finding that the road back to a relationship with land and language are keys to community healing—to what in fact it means to be Indigenous.

 The CBC Massey Lectures is a partnership between CBC, House of Anansi Press and Massey College in the University of Toronto. Named in honour of Vincent Massey, the first Canadian-born governor general of Canada, since their creation in 1961 by the CBC the Massey Lectures have established their place as a Canadian institution and become an annual highlight of our cultural life. The five lectures provide a forum on radio where contemporary thinkers can  explore important issues of our time. Former lecturers include Martin Luther King Jr., Margaret Atwood and Stephen Lewis. These days, the lecturers are all Canadian, and the series is recorded on a cross-Canada tour. The book of the Massey Lectures is published by House of Anansi Press.
