An absolute must listen for Canadians
Elliott tells her story in a way that is so raw and honest it can’t be ignored. It’s a beautiful piece of writing and every Canadian should be listening to her honest depiction of her reality and story. If you’re not sure how colonization still affects Indigenous peoples in Canada, look no further.
