In this 50 minute talk, the celebrated writer, activist and performer Lee Maracle takes a grounded look at the correlation between violence against the earth and violence against women and our own responsibilities as citizens of our own Nations. Highly recommended viewing.

She is currently the Aboriginal Writer-in-Residence for First Nations House, and an instructor in the Aboriginal Studies Department at the University of Toronto. Lee is one of the founders of the En’owkin International School of Writing in Penticton, BC, and Cultural Director of the Centre for Indigenous Theatre in Toronto.
