The last few years has seen the term ‘pretendian’ coined to describe those who claim Indigenous heritage, however these often-prominent figures are outed as culture thieves with no ties to Indigenous communities.

Panelists: Minister Will Goodon, Laura Forsythe, Dr. Darryl Leroux, Dr. David Parent, Kyra De La Ronde. Moderated by Julia Lafreniere.
