David always felt he was different growing up, but it wasn’t until he was being teased one summer in the small town of Melita that he thought to question it. In this episode we hear how David, with the help of his father, begins to embrace his Cree identity.
David's earliest childhood memory involves running down the hallway of his suburban Winnipeg home, whereas his father's takes place on the trapline, in Northern Manitoba. Despite these disparate beginnings, both have had to embark on their own journeys to reconnect with their Cree identities.
David discovers a missing branch from his family tree – a great-aunt no one quite remembers, whose short life came to a tragic end. David pieces together the clues and makes some surprising discoveries.
