22 Aug Rethinking Canada Day – The Whistler Podcast: Mayor Jack Crompton speaks with Tanina Williams
On July 1, 2022, the SLCC hosted a conversation on Rethinking Canada Day with Nantcw N Kakusent Tanina Williams of the Lil’wat Nation and Whistler Mayor Jack Crompton, recorded live with a contemplative and curious audience. Listen in for a powerful conversation with Tanina Williams, who shares her relationship with Canada, colonization, and her experience with systemic racism. Williams also speaks about healing trauma and her role in working with youth.
Tanina Williams is a Performing Artist, Mentor, Entrepreneur and Educator through Amawilc, which brings Indigenous ways of knowing and being to the classroom and the boardroom. Through workshops built around sharing circles, hand-crafts, and storytelling, she brings the opportunity to create awareness, understanding, respect and togetherness between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures.
As part of the RMOW’s and Mayor Crompton’s broader work toward enriching the community fabric and community building in Whistler, through The Whistler Podcast he provides a new channel to connect with Whistler residents to discuss topics of community interest.
We raise our hands to Tanina for bringing this important conversation to the SLCC and to Mayor Jack Crompton for engaging the community of Whistler to tune in to listen, hold space, and delve into important perspectives from such an important voice and leader from the Lil’wat community.
