Doreen Spence on the Plains Indian Cultural Survival School

In this seven-minute audio clip, Cree elder Doreen Spence shares some of her memories of being the president of the board of the Plains Indian Cultural Survival School in Calgary — the first school run by and for indigenous people in an urban area in Canada. As president, MacPhee helped guide the school’s path and engaged in countless hours of fundraising, counselling, conflict mediation, as well as managing the school’s relationship with the settler state authorities, not to mention teaching the occasional Cree language class.
