Wilton Littlechild is a Cree chief from Maskwacis, Alberta. He is a lawyer, a former hockey player, a residential school survivor, and more recently he was one of the commissioners of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
He joins us as a special guest on this episode of Changing On The Fly to talk about his own life story, how we can use hockey to promote nation to nation dialogue and understanding, and how we can move towards decolonizing sport, particularly through the Calls to Action of the commission.
Later in the show, we also break down the St-Louis Blues’ pitiful visit to the White House, and how hockey players are allowing themselves to be foolish pawns in Trump’s desperate efforts to normalize his presidency.
