What is the Story? (Podcast)
Join Brandon Mitchell, a member of the Mi’kmaq nation, as he shares the story of the 1st Listuguj Salmon Raid in 1980, told to him by his mother-in-law only a few years ago. While the 1981 Salmon raid is often the one remembered through family conversations.
Brandon learned that police stormed the Listuguj community a year earlier. Learning about this previous raid inspired Brandon Mitchell to write “Migwite’tmeg: We Remember It”, a contribution to the groundbreaking comic collection This Place, published by Portage & Main Press/HighWater Press.
We need to recognize and place value on the stories we are telling. - Brandon Mitchell
