Adam Beach on The Hour and DerRic Starlight

Just a great interview (in video)! Though I disagree with his perspective on stereotypes about Aboriginal peoples (I do think that they exist and are consistently reinforced), he was honest, funny and also made a pitch for DerRic Starlight, Sarcee puppeteer and ventriloquist (from Tsuu T’ina First Nation in Alberta). A little bit of background on DerRic can be found here. Imagine him delivering programs in public libraries throughout Canada!

  1. Thanks for the DerRic Starlight info.! Have you ever seen him perform? I can totally see him doing something in the Aboriginal Reading in the Round space at WPL’s Millenium… ideas, ideas.

  2. I have never seen him perform, but have been aware of him for several years now. I imagine that he’d be really good.
