THUNDER BAY — Fort William journalist Jolene Banning hosted a CBC Thunder Bay two-and-a-half-hour special on National Indigenous Peoples Day after one of her Stories from Anemki Wajiw columns was recognized with a national award.

“It was a lot of fun — it was a lot of stories about Mino Bimaadiziwin – living the good life,” says Banning, producer with Makwa Creative and nationally syndicated columnist with CBC. “It was a really nice theme for National Indigenous Peoples Day and we touched on stories of living the good life but also about Pride. It’s also Pride month so we had a balance of stories of Mino Bimaadiziwin and of Pride, but all of it from an Indigenous lens.”

Banning says the radio special featured segments on Shannon and Ryan Gustafson, a spring hide tanning camp, Indigenous humour with comedian Don Kelly, Quill Christie-Peters’ Indigenous Youth Residency Program, and Rez Pride.
