I read the Orenda by Joseph Boyden last month and was stunned by the writing, the story, and the torture in it. I have been trying to put meaning to it for a while and this video of Wab Kinew debating with Stephen Lewis on Canada Reads with host Jian Ghomeshi helps me gain a new perspective on the torture. I don’t want to be stuck in my cultural context and I don’t know how to put torture in a different light so listen as Wab talks to us from another perspective.
