Show Notes

Dr. Cindy Blackstock


🪶In this conversation with Dr. Cindy Blackstock, we talk about childhood dreams, envisioning the powerful future of Indigenous children and their legacies, Spirit Bear, and stories of the places that are close to Cindy's heart. 

🪶Cindy is a member of the Gitxsan First Nation, the Executive Director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society and a professor at McGill University’s School of Social Work. 

🪶 Cindy is a recipient of the SSHRC Gold Medal, she was honoured to work with First Nations colleagues on a successful human rights challenge to Canada’s inequitable provision of child and family services and failure to implement Jordan’s Principle. This hard-fought litigation has resulted in hundreds of thousands of services being provided to First Nations children, youth, and families. 

🪶We are so delighted to bring this impactful and inspirational, heartwarming conversation to our dear listeners! 

🧡We dedicate this episode to all Indigenous children, youth, and residential school survivors - those with us today, and those who have moved into the spirit world. 

⭐️ Special shout out to my dad, my hero, Gordon Alex Fox!
