Budgeting for investments that matter to Indigenous Peoples – InFocus

Discussion over the federal budget and whether it will deliver on key concerns, plus the story of who was the real Pocahontas

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie

In this live edition we advance three stories just ahead of the release of the 2017 federal budget.

One key priority is protection of the land where an investment in the guardianship program would see funds directed at what Indigenous Peoples have done for centuries.

Also, it’s World Water Day.  What better day for the Supreme Court of Canada to hear First Nations fight their case to protect the Peel River Watershed in the Yukon.

And finally, who the real Pocahontas was and how far away from reality the fairy tale story of the Indian Princess really is.
