Night Moves is narrated by Marsha Rasmussen Knight, who is an Ojibwe-Metis professional artist, with her roots in Manitoba’s Interlake. She uses her multi-faceted experience in the arts as an avenue for social justice. She has worked with numerous non-profit organizations and agencies, including the Elizabeth Fry Society and Health Canada. As well, she was a Drama Facilitator for seven years working with female-identifying youth who were being sexually exploited. Marsha continues to develop projects with a goal of producing impact documentary films such as food insecurity and Indigenous Food Sovereignty. She also teaches Indigenous Performance at the University of Winnipeg.
Abandoned Manitoba is narrated by the author, Gordon Goldsborough, who is an aquatic ecologist in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba, and an active member of the Manitoba Historical Society, serving as its President and Head Researcher. His weekly radio series on CBC entitled “Abandoned Manitoba” was the inspiration for two best-selling books, starting with Abandoned Manitoba in 2016. The sequel, More Abandoned Manitoba, won the 2019 McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award. Purchase the Abandoned Manitoba audiobook here.
