Please join me, Gregory Cadotte (Anishinabe Nation) and Preston Twoyoungmen (Nakoda Nation) as we discuss "Olympics on our Native Land". What opportunities have the Olympics brought us as Native People, the pro's, the con's! Did we miss out on a great opportunity while the world was watching? We will take caller's from all walk's of life and talk about this important issue. On the discussion table is the following: The Lil'wat, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations are the owners of the traditional and shared territories in which the Games are being held, and they have used this opportunity to assert rights and title over the territories. This is the first time in history that Indigenous Peoples have been recognized as full partners in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and more importantly, the first time in history that the IOC and the Organizing Committee have recognized and respected traditional territories.
