In this episode we talk with Zoe Todd. Zoe Todd (Métis/otipemisiw) is from Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton), Alberta, Canada. She writes about fish, art, Métis legal traditions and decolonization in urban and prairie contexts. She also studies human-animal relations, colonialism and environmental change in north/western Canada.
This was part of the interview we did with Zoe last year about the legacy of Jane Jacobs. Zoe talks about urban indigenous narratives and history through both her personal experience and study. Zoe makes some important points about how talking about any urban situation we have to tend to the colonial history and relationships.
