Hay Festival Reforms: Lee Maracle on indigenous education, in conversation with Ingrid Bejerman

Reformas Hay Festival: Educación indígena

Arequipa 2017, 

The 30th Hay Festival coincides with the 500th anniversary of the reforms proposed by Martin Luther. In the same spirit, we have asked a number of thinkers to present new reforms on matters that are relevant today. Lee Maracle is one of the most prolific Canadian aboriginal authors and is a recognized authority on indigenous Americans and their literature. An award-winning poet, novelist, storyteller, screenplay writer, actor and preserver of mythology and traditions in Stó:lō, she will talk to Ingrid Bejerman about the place of indigenous knowledge in university education programmes in the Western world.
