Indigenous Politicians in Mainstream Politics – InFocus

Discussion about how Indigenous people can represent Canadians without compromising the pursuit of justice for their communities

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie

In this edition we ask what kind change Indigenous Peoples can make when they are elected politicians in public office.

Is a seat within Canada’s political halls of power the best way to create change for Indigenous peoples?

Or are Indigenous people in public office also an affront to Indigenous sovereignty?

Our guests share how they are striving forward in the political arena, making a difference in a country that was founded on the dispossession of their ancestors.
