Can one be Jewish and Indian; Jewish and Mohawk; Jewish and MicMac? Yes! Jewish and aboriginal cultures have been intertwined for many moons. In this issue we begin to explore where the two communities have connected historically, culturally and in our lived experiences.

Howard Adler is Jewish and Indigenous (Anishinaabe). Read What I Learned in School, Guilt Shirt and Cold Feet a sampling of his award-winning poetry. And, watch Honour Song, a short video honouring Native Americans who fought in WWII.

On this episode of Shtetl we talk with actress/director Jennifer Podemski and filmmaker and writer Howard Adler. Both are First Nations (Ojibwe) and Jewish. This episode is part of Indigenous Shtetl: A Special Edition.
