“We have to make them more like us” Lee Maracle’s grandfather had said to her. Canadians are more like Indigenous people – from showering everyday to accepting LGBTQ+ members of our community, Canadians have adopted countless Indigenous practices.
Maracle related her experiences and thoughts on healing at her lecture as part of the Indigenous Speakers Series on October 3rd. The Humanities Theatre was nearly full of students who wanted for the integrated dance and lecture of Lee Maracle and Bill Coleman.
Maracle shared stories of herself, her father, and her grandfather – all who defied the people telling them to stay quiet. From her father performing the Lament of Confederation to her own experiences of speaking when she was told to stay quiet and remembering when she was told to forget, Maracle demonstrated the importance of speaking up.
