InFocus: the ‘Kenora Indian March of 1965’

aptn InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

Fifty years ago Aboriginal peoples in Kenora marched against injustices they faced.

Theodore Fontaine, Russ Diabo, and Trevor Greyeyes give their take on why Indigenous people are still marching today for similar reasons.

We also look to Australia where its government has just announced compensation for Aboriginal people of the Stolen Generations.

Our guests argue whether this is part of a global reconciliation movement or something else.
