Eddy Robinson is an educator on Indigenous issues. He explains why asking “How Can I Help?” is not the right question.

In the first episode of this four-part TVO video series, Anishinaabe educator and public speaker Eddy Robinson talks about the importance of taking time to listen to Indigenous stories. He recounts leaving home as a teenager, getting in trouble with the law, being disappointed with his parents, and how he ultimately came to an understanding of their traumatic past in residential schools.
