From residential schools, forced misidentification on birth certificates and census, to assimilation into settlers religion and culture; this program will help viewers gain insightful knowledge on the difficult topics that surround Native American culture. The program also highlights into the contemporary ongoing struggles of Native American communities and what viewers can do to be allies to their local Native American tribes.
