Mohawk communications officer addresses mainstream myths about Canada’s First Nations with Loyalist PR

This afternoon's Loyalist PR case study class featured a visit by Brant Bardy, Communications Officer and Director of Nation Building for the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga-Mohawk Territory).

Brant’s presentation highlighted a number of mainstream misconceptions about First Nations (including what the term “First Nations” actually means).

He also provided tips for communicating with First Nations communities, and recapped recent crisis communications efforts during high-profile protests on the Tyendinaga Territory.

It was great to have you as part of our class, Brant – thanks for stopping by!
