Speak Up! playlist for 07/16/2019
Robin's guest for the hour is Dr. Ronald Spatz, a professor at the University of Alaska Anchorage and the Founding Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the Alaska Quarterly Review (AQR); you can also connect here on Facebook. He is on sabbatical at SFU where he is focusing on current trends in CanLit with a special interest in Canadian Indigenous literary work.
We aired the AQR poem “Shaawatke’é’s Birth” by Emily Wall and X’unei Lance Twitchell where the audio in Tlingit and English speaks to how important language is to sustain a culture and cultural identity.
