The Indigenous vote and education promises InFocus

aptn InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

Do you vote?  That’s one of the hottest debates among Indigenous peoples in this federal election campaign.

Indigenous scholars shared their views recently at a forum hosted by the University of Winnipeg.  Watch for yourself and then decide if you’ll cast a ballot.

Then we look back at what brought about the resignation of the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations.  That same issue has surfaced again for the federal election.

Which party will win the Indigenous vote?  We begin that discussion in this InFocus season premier.
