Thomas King: The Influence of Indigenous Art

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

In 2015, award-winning writer Thomas King spoke about his novel, "The Back of the Turtle." The conversation also explored how Indigenous artists have influenced the debate over Indigenous issues in Canada, and whether reconciliation with non-Indigenous Canadians is possible. Then, Northwestern Ontario Hub journalist Charnel Anderson visited Silver Islet near Thunder Bay to learn how a historic building is being restored in the community.
