Kathy Mallett on Being a School Board Trustee

The material from Kathy Mallett in Resisting the State: Canadian History Through the Stories of Activists focuses mainly on her involvement as a leader in the struggle by indigenous people, mostly women, in Winnipeg in the early ’80s against ongoing attacks on their families by the Children’s Aid Society. In this audio clip, however, she speaks about about her experience a few years after that running for and then serving on the local school board — the first Native woman in the century of the board’s existence to hold that position.
