Building Community through Indigenous Knowledge and Healing, with Jody Harbour and Sherry Saevil, Grandmothers Voice
In this episode, Kirstin speaks with Jody Harbour and Sherry Saevil, co-founders of Grandmothers Voice, an Indigenous organization that serves, educates and heals, standing shoulder to shoulder with community. They talk about the impact of the Emergency Community Support Fund grant the organization received during the pandemic, and how it supported a virtual speaker series that reached people locally and afar. Their conversation explores the importance of honouring elders, knowledge, ceremony and connection to the land, as well as the impacts of residential schools and intergenerational trauma. Jody and Sherry share the details of current and upcoming projects for the organization, including some that have launched since recording.
