A fire damaged a bridge last week that was a major economic link between the Fort William First Nation and its neighbour, Thunder Bay, Ont.
Since the bridge burning, a rash of racist incidents have swept through the area and a wave of racism washed through social media.
Fort William Chief Georjann Morriseau and the Mayor of Thunder Bay held a joint press conference to try and relieve some of the tension.
APTN anchor Michael Hutchinson spoke with Chief Morriseau about the issue.
