Ep. 834
In part two: After a peaceful reclamation of the army base built on their land in 1993, elders of Stoney Point lead a movement to take back Ipperwash Provincial Park, which was also part of their original land and contained a burial ground.

This episode recalls the events of that night, and examines the fallout in the 28 years since, asking if reconciliation will ever be possible for the people of Stoney Point.In this podcast: interviews include Bonnie Bressette, Caroline “Cully” George, Pierre George, Kevin Simon, Claudette Bressette, Alabama Bressette, and Donald Worme. The episode is in memory of Anthony “Dudley” George.Deep thanks to Heather Menzies editor, and Kerry Kilmartin publisher of “Our Long Struggle for Home: The Ipperwash” by Aazhoodenaang Enjibaajig Host: Karyn PuglieseCredits: Karyn Pugliese (Producer), Kim Wheeler (Producer) Research for this episode included:Our Long Struggle for Home: The Ipperwash by Aazhoodenaang Enjibaajig  The Ipperwash Inquiry Report: A road map to better relationships between Aboriginal people and the Ontario governmentOne Dead Indian: The Premier, the Police, and the Ipperwash Crisis, a book by Canadian investigative journalist Peter EdwardsSound in this podcast included:“Late Night news (Problems) by Farewell Davidson G20 Protests in Toronto Turn Ugly recorded by George KourounisA look back at Ipperwash and Dudley George's death, APTN by Mark Blackburn June 06, 2013"Act Naturally" by Buck OwensTheme music from “Dudley Do-Right” cartoonDudley Do-Right "Marigolds" episodeListen to Maxed Out, a podcast by Canada’s National ObserverCANADALANDBACK is a co-production from Canada's National Observer & Canadaland Sponsors: Douglas, Freshbooks If you value this podcast, Support us!
