S2 E8 Cedar Sisters: Haida lawyer Terri Lynn Williams Davidson
Terri-Lynn Williams Davidson - lawyer, singer, knowledge keeper and weaver of worlds. She hails from Haida Gwaii, a wild archipelago off of Canada’s west coast where bears, whales, otters and eagles all dwell in a lush coastal rainforest soaked in rain and salt water. We asked Terri Lynn about her story - how she became the counsel for the Haida Nation- an expert in both Canadian common law AND in the indigenous laws of the Haida people. She talks about how she brought the stories and laws which she was raised with into the courtroom when her Nation challenged powerful logging interests in the landmark Haida case at the Supreme Court of Canada. She also shares her perspectives on the defeat of Enbridge and on RAVEN's role in bringing together 8 Indigenous Nations to fight - and beat - the tar sands pipeline and tankers project. Today’s show features the magnificent Terri Lynn Williams Davidson in conversation - and in song. Music on this episode is by Terri Lynn, Bill Henderson and Claire Lawrence, and is from their latest album, “Grizzly Bear Town” available on iTunes, Spotify and Soundcloud.
On today's show we recap the USWNT's first two incredible games of the She Believes Cup! We talk lineups, we talk how Christen Press is at PEAK Christen Press right now, and we fully agree that Sonnett doesn't need any more playing time. And Allyson tries to stop Madalyn from believing in her far-fetched "Vlatko starting Lynn Williams in the Olympics" conspiracy theories. Most importantly, we celebrate Ali and Ash's new daughter Sloane Phillips! If you have any thoughts, or are a staunch Emily Sonnett supporter, email us at email@example.com!
Lynn Williams, Professional Soccer Player for the North Carolina Courage of the NWSL, Member of the USWNT, 2016 NWSL Most Valuable Player, and former Division I Student-Athlete and Pepperdine University, speaks out about her experiences as a black female athlete in the predominantly white sport of soccer. She discusses the trials and tribulations that she faced at each level along the way, and she emphasizes the importance of diverse representation in the world of sports. We need to provide young girls with inspiring role models that look like them so that they know that their dreams are possible. In her own life, Lynn has been dedicated to driving change in the soccer world by using her voice and being part of the creation of the Black Women's Player collective.The time for change is NOW. Together, we can change more than just the game.“At the end of the day, don’t let anybody take away your love from the game.” - Lynn Williams
