Dion Smith-Dokkie talks about their idea of home--sometimes we're not really sure if there is one DISTINCT place and sometimes it may be a journey.  They also talked about childhood, two-spirit, pronouns, "coming out" at age 13, feeling torn between places and people, mental illness (ocd, anxiety, depression), medication, feeling manic, doctors (who sometimes don't listen), suicidal urges, self-discovery, what it feels like to be referred to by a different name and pronoun than you identify with, growing up on and off reserve, First Nations' rights (and the struggle for recognition of traditional rights and spaces), isolation, the importance of speaking and learning traditional languages, and SO MUCH MORE.  

Dion is a member of West Moberly First Nations (Dion's mother is Dane-zaa, Cree, Saulteaux and Scottish; their father's ancestor's come from the British aisles) located in Northeastern BC.  

Thanks for listening!
