InFocus: Reconciliation, Restitution and the beat of the drum

Three different stories that all centre on why there can’t be reconciliation without restitution

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie

Lisa and Tamara Muswagon are part of a growing movement to reach out to young people in Indigenous communities and stand with them in solidarity.

With all the challenges young people living on reserves face, the Muswagon sisters tell APTN InFocus how powerful the drum has been in bringing the voices of Indigenous youth to the forefront.

Also in this edition, Ellen Gabriel shares her view on reconciliation and why there must also be restitution.

We also update the story of Kayleen McKay who is about to challenge her own resilience so she can make a substantial contribution to the group, Drag the Red.
