Manito Ahbee, Occupy INAC and A Two-Spirit Journey – InFocus

Exclusive look into INAC occupation in Winnipeg, plus discussion about Indigenous culture, dance, music and a Two-Spirit Elder shares her story.

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie

In this edition we put three things InFocus: the Manito Ahbee Festival celebrating Indigenous cultures and music begins; the one month (and still going) occupation of the regional Indigenous Affairs and Northern Development office in Winnipeg; and Ma-Nee Chacaby shares her story in a new book, A Two-Spirit Journey: The Autobiography of a Lesbian Ojibwa-Cree Elder.
