We talk about Rebecca's advocacy and her view as an indigenous Canadian woman.

Rebecca Thomas is an author, a poet, an award-winning spoken word artist, and an activist for Indigenous rights. In this episode we talk about her biggest turning point; the first time she read one of her poems on stage. That first poem was about reconnecting with her Mi'kmaq heritage and her relationship with her father who is a residential school survivor. We also talk about her time as Halifax's poet laureate, her books and why her Indigenous heritage has become a bigger part of her identity as an adult.
