The team at Stories From The Land, along with the Makoons Media Group(our parent company) and the Indian & Cowboy Podcast Media Network are proud to announce that the Stories From The Land Podcast has been awarded a Canada Council Reconciliation Grant!

Canada Council Reconciliation Projects are about legacy and creating a new chapter for Indian Residential School Survivors, their families, communities and Nations using art & art practice. We will humbly deliver this project with that in mind. We have a vision at Stories From The Land to create a long lasting legacy through Indigenous storytelling, digital media, podcasting and old school radio.

We can't wait to visit communities, sit by the fire, drink tea and share our common bond between Nations - loving the lands & territories we are from.

Ryan McMahon

Ryan McMahon is one of the most dynamic Aboriginal/Native American Comedians working in Canada and the United States today. He’s also a graduate of the prestigious Second City Conservatory (Toronto). His show is a loose, fast paced, silly but always honest look at society from the perspective of a “Native dude.” His breakout performances on “Welcome To Turtle Island Too – A Celebration of Aboriginal Comedy” (CBC TV/Radio, Corkscrew Media, 2010), and the “Hystereotypes” (CBC TV, Frantic Films, 2011) Gala television taping at the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival in 2011 led to his own one hour standup comedy special “Ryan McMahon – UnReserved” (CBC TV/Radio, Corkscrew Media, taped in June 2012). McMahon tours independently, selling out venues large & small, and his live show combines standup, improv, sketch comedy and weaves stories and characters into an original style of comedy he calls – INDIAN VAUDEVILLE.
