Meet Eddy Robinson
Eddy Robinson Anishinaabe/Mushkegowuk grew up living on the margin in Toronto. It wasn’t until his adult years that he really began to understand the legacy of his father’s experience at Residential School and how it directly impacted his life. A traditional Anishinaabe Vision Quest would imminently begin his journey towards understanding his Indigenous identity and he is now a noted educator, consultant, writer and speaker. He has presented to numerous First Nations, Indigenous communities, Educational and Corporate institutions as well as several Indigenous and non-Indigenous not for profit organizations. Amongst several interviews Mr. Robinson has appeared on National Geographic’s, The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, to share the Indigenous narrative and voice.
