This short documentry, produced with Algonquin College, takes a look at what some are calling the "cultural genocide" happening in Attawapiskat, Ontario.
Attawapiskat children have been without a real school for the past 9 years. In 2000, the grade school was closed because grade school students were getting sick from a massive diesel spill under the school. The spill happened in 1979 while the government of Canada was operating the school.
This video takes a look at the lack of investment by Government into Aboriginal infrastructure, such as water, electricity and schools.
This video was created by a class at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School for the For Youth, By Youth News Educational Summit.
This is a beautiful video depicting the importance of putting yourself in someone elses shoes before you pass judgement on them. Being a critical thinker is very important in both social and education settings - you can never know the whole story, so it's important to listen, look at others opinions and be open. This is the key to viewing the world around you with wide open, accepting eyes!
Thank you to the advisors and students at Lonfields-Davidson Heights for this moving video.
