Tayla Paul and Dylan Letendre

In this episode listeners will hear from Tayla Paul and Dylan Letendre, two participants in a project exploring urban Aboriginal identity called “This is What I Wish you Knew.” For this project fifty community members carved and painted their personal stories onto rectangular clay tiles that are now displayed at the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre in Halifax. This project was conducted to build on the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

In addition to listening to this episode we recommend going to the Friendship Centre on Gottingen Street in Halifax, and spend some time with these beautiful and important tiles.
