"Open hostility toward Indigenous people exists in many places in Canada, but the Prairies has its own distinct brand of racism. It was challenging to contain the anger I feel about the way my people are treated, without having that skew my ability to tell this story [Kímmapiiyipitssini: The Meaning of Empathy]. It was a challenge. But I tried to reflect the humility, dignity and respect I see in my community and its leaders. I tried to channel them."
