A Million Porcupines Crying in the Dark
Some of the lectures contain profanity, however, this does not detract from the content. Creationism is also discussed. Please consult your local resources evaluation policy before using this text.
In 2003, Thomas King delivered the forty-second annual series of Massey Lectures. These audio clips consist of five lectures that examine the First Nations experience and imagination. The five lectures are: 1. "You'll Never Believe What Happened" Is Always a Great Way to Start; 2. You're Not the Indian I Had in Mind; 3. Let Me Entertain You; 4. A Million Porcupines Crying in the Dark; and 5. What Is It About Us That You Don't Like. Teachers are advised to select clips from the lectures that directly relate to curriculum.
