The Tetla: A First Nations alternative currency

Meaghan Champion is S’amuna’ of the Cowichan tribes. She’s the founder of a new currency that is circulating in the Victoria area. Meaghan Champion speaks with Redeye host Jane Williams and tells her why she started the Tetla system and her vision for what this currency can do for First Nations people in the area.

Redeye is a three-hour live radio show produced by a collective based in Vancouver, B.C.  If you live in the Vancouver area and are interested in working in alternative media, we’d love to hear from you. You don't need to know anything about radio production -- we provide lots of training and support. To find out more about the people behind this podcast, check out our website. And if you'd like to come down to the station and meet us, contact us at redeye(at)coopradio(dot)org.
