    I admit that I should never claim to understand what First Nation, Inuit and Métis people have experienced because of the ignorance of gouvernement policy.

    it's amazing how this is out there and yet the abuse still continued for our ppl back then, and from catholic priests and nuns, this is why i am not happy that i am a roman catholic, i follow my traditions to this day!

    This is my community! I am so thrilled to see this, 45 years after it was filmed. A lot of old faces, what a gem. Would love to learn more about the "Challenge for Change Programme" and the events leading up to this day
