Métis In Space: Podcast!

metis in space

This may be my shortest post yet, but do not despair! I’ve got 50 minutes of jam packed audio to make up for any perceived lack of loquaciousness!

Imagine this: two Métis nerds get together, drink a bottle of wine, watch a Sci-Fi movie or television episode and critique it from an Indigenous perspective. Gold? WHY YES! And gold is exactly what Molly Swain and I are offering.

We think this winning combination might interest folks beyond our Aunties, so we’ve uploaded our first podcast to SoundCloud!

In this inaugural episode of otipêyimisiw-iskwêwak kihci-kîsikohk (Métis In Space), Molly and Chelsea review Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 4 Episode 8, “Pangs,” where “On Thanksgiving, Buffy encounters the spirit of a Native American warrior whose people were wiped out by settlers.”

So slip on your most comfortable moose-hide moccasins, grab a mug of bush tea and give Métis in Space a listen!

    Great podcast! I especially love the ask-a-white-guy segment. Thanks for this!

  3. You hear about the new red wine? It’s called we want our land back! http://www.mountainguide.com/the-last-metis/

  4. Wow! Just found your cast! It would be great to hear you address the way colonial anthropology got spun into sci-fi. The peoples of the Mississippi and their monuments were subjected to some weird distortions by pulp fictioneers like H.P. Lovecraft. Keep up the great work. I am sure there are many other examples.

    • Oh this comes up a fair amount, check out Episode 6: Star Trek “The Paradise Syndrome” for how Sci-Fi creates worlds where aliens really do build all those incredible ancient monuments that Indigenous peoples are clearly too backwards to have done.
