History Podcasts

Facing Our History – The North American Gael examines the role of the Highlander, the Scottish Gael, in the colonial and post-colonial history of North America, and how colonialism impacted the Scottish Gael. Sgoil Gàidhlig Bhaile an Taigh Mhóir co-founders, Scott Morrison and Rick Gwynallen will be interviewing Scottish Gaelic and Indigenous academics, leaders, and activists in North America to educate ourselves on our own history, and to use that fresh perspective to shape a path forward today. As we do so, we will explore the challenges and opportunities facing the Gaelic language and culture today, and you will meet some of the people making a difference today. Each program will be in the medium of English to reach the widest audience, but will have some Gaelic woven into the program – a taste of Gaelic if you will. You will also find in these pages reviews of books and other material relevant to our subject and other resources
