Show Notes:

The in-migration of large numbers of First Nations people to prairie cities like Winnipeg in the latter half of the 20th century resulted in a new and destructive form of poverty.

What is often hidden from view is the response from the aboriginal community. Aboriginal women, in particular took a leading role in combating the effects of poverty and racial prejudice.

We speak about the history of First Nations organizing with Jim Silver, co-director of Urban and Inner City Studies at the University of Winnipeg.
