Introduction to Indigenous Relations in BC - Peter Walters

I've used pandemic time to condense my "Introduction to Indigenous Relations in BC" workshop into eight short sessions.

You can listen to them as a podcast, or download the MP3s here. The links to the YouTube videos are here.

They're meant for people who are new to Indigenous relations in British Columbia, and need an overview of some of the key points.

Are they as good as one of my workshops? Heck, no. You don't get the questions and answers, and the general discussion that adds real value. You also don't get my anecdotes, which is arguably a good thing. But they're free, and the Creative Commons license I've applied allows them to be shared and adapted, subject to giving me credit. Enjoy.
