TORONTO — A brand new TV series aims to break down the harmful stereotypes attributed to white women in the city by bringing Indigenous people to a Starbucks for the first time ever.
“It really gives them a chance to experience how rich in culture we can be,” said Callie, who is a barista at the Starbucks in the valley. “When they first presented me with the idea, I thought ‘K, I am so confused. Like, how are they going to survive one winter not living in those animal huts they like to make?’ Then I thought that’s what the pumpkin spice lattes are for! It will keep them warm at night. I can be really smart, this one time…”
In the first episode, an Indigenous family will experience city life by settling in an apartment with the words ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ plastered all over the walls, Josh Groban on repeat, and The Bachelor on heavy rotation.
Sources confirmed that Callie is still describing how smart she really is.
