Welcome to Madang

About Madang:

Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renown authors, leaders, public figures and scholars on religion, culture and everything in-between.

This has been a dream of mine for many years and now it is. reality. Please join me at madang.

This is the fourteenth episode of Madang where I converse with Kaitlin Curtice.

Kaitlin Curtice, a poet, author and public speaker. She is an enrolled citizen of the Potawatomi Nation and has grown up in the Christian faith. Kaitlin writes on the intersection of Indigenous spirituality, faith in everyday life, and decolonization within the church.

Her latest book NATIVE: Identity, Belonging and Rediscovering God is about identity, soul-searching, and being on the never-ending journey of finding ourselves and finding God. As both a citizen of the Potawatomi Nation and a Christian, Curtice offers a unique perspective on these topics. In this book, she shows how reconnecting with her identity both informs and challenges her faith.

Praise for her book, Native

“It isn’t very often that a book about identity–let alone dismantling white supremacy and patriarchy–reads like a poem, but that’s Kaitlin. She is thoughtful decolonization set to music and wrapped in love.”
Sarah Bessey, author of Miracles and Other Reasonable Things and Jesus Feminist

In this episode I talk with Kaitlin about poetry, women are water protectors, baptism, spiritual places, community, land acknowledgments, white supremacy, language and so much more.
