In 2010, a national movement for fairness in education for First Nations children, in safe and suitable schools, was born in the Cree community of Attawapiskat. This was Shannen’s Dream.
With Hi-Ho Mistahey!, director Alanis Obomsawin brings together the voices of those who have taken the dream across Canada and all the way to the United Nations in Geneva.
The children’s voices were finally heard in February 2012. Construction of a new school for Attawapiskat could finally begin.
