Decolonize

 

You hear that word a lot when it comes to indigenous social issues.

At The Frog Radio, we believe this to mean: to infuse more indigenous culture and values into our daily lives, regardless of race; not throwing away your cell phone and going to live in the bush (although that sounds so appealing sometimes!)

The resources below can help you live a decolonized life.

Domestic Violence

For immediate emergency help, call 911

Ending Violence Association of Canada- A list of help, province by province

ShelterSafe.ca - A list of women's shelters across Canada

FM Radio

This one may come as a surprise to people. An Indigenous world view includes sharing and uplifting one another, even if, in a western world view we're seen as competition. In order to decolonize the industry, The Frog Radio will not become a CRTC regulated station, which means (unless you have the right hook ups and adequate data plan) you won't be able to listen to us in your car. But you'll be able to tune into these indigenous stations:

Truth & Reconcilation

It is SO important to understand that reconciliation starts with reading the TRC recommendations and then acting on them.
