John Ralston Saul in conversation with David Heska Wanbli Weiden introduced by Stéphane Lessard, Consul General of Canada in Denver
Writer's participation is sponsored by Consul General of Canada in Denver
In John Ralston Saul's The Comeback, he argues that the return to the forefront of Indigenous peoples, including their languages and philosophies, is central to how all of our societies could handle today's crises. Yes, if we look at virtually every country which emerged from European empires - and that includes every one of us in the Americas - there are still so many things that are deeply wrong. There is still a huge amount of work to be done on reconciliation and restitution, to say nothing of the absence of justice. But the contributions Indigenous peoples are already making, and can increasingly make, must not be sidelined or forgotten.
