As a young boy, filmmaker Lorne Olson was told that Indigenous people were like apples - red on the outside, white on the inside. Ironically, it was that notion that set him off on a long journey to find out who he was. Throughout his life, he has identified himself as Métis, half-breed, Oji-Cree, Indian, Native, Aboriginal, and so on. He never felt entirely comfortable with any of these names - each one a reflection of the changing dialogue of the times. Apples and Indians is a whimsical and profound 5-minute ride that sees Lorne speeding through decades in search of his true identity.

    Love the tongue in cheek!!! "I am Indigenous" Made me laugh out loud! "Politically Correct" Terminology has nothing to do with true Identity. :) A great lesson!
