Natan Obed: Celebrate Diverse Thought

About the Episode

The president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, Natan Obed tells the story of a childhood torn between two countries and two cultures, and the struggles he has faced as someone of mixed race. He shares the story of how his parents met in a residential school, his thoughts on reconciliation and racism, and describes how a young boy who had no doubt he’d grow up to play in the NHL became a proud voice for Inuit communities in the Arctic.
