One thought on “Link: Interview with Strange Empire creator Laurie Finstad-Knizhnik”
I love the comment Laurie made that this wasn’t “John A. MacDonald’s history”. Living where I do, there’s some reminders, quite faded, of a tragic lesser-known Metis/earlier settler history that’s seldom talked about. After Louis Riel was hanged in Regina, the Metis were forced to the fringes of society and the area was resettled by others. I was really impressed by Laurie Finstad-Knizhnik’s interview. My hopes for the series are even greater.
