    Revisiting the St Eugene Golf Resort and Casino and the Mob Museum

    29:49

    On our first podcast of 2022 we replay a couple of my personal highlights of 2021. One was staying at the St Eugene Golf Resort and Casino in Cranbrook, BC. It was there I got to meet and talk with Sophie Pierre, former Chief of the A’qam First Nation and Board Chair of the St Eugene Golf Resort and Casino. It’s a two part interview where we talked about her experience of being a former student at St Eugene when it was a residential school and how it transformed from a residential school to the resort it is today. The other highlight in 2021 for me was traveling to Las Vegas where I got to tour the Mob Museum in Las Vegas and learn about the history of the power struggle between the mob, law enforcement and Las Vegas. It’s a fascinating place and a tour I highly recommend when in Vegas. After my return from Vegas I did a phone conversation with Clair White, Educational Programs Manager with the Mob Museum Support the show: https://www.theinformedtraveler.org/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
