8th Fire Indigenous in the City

8th Fire Indigenous in the City

In the opening episode of the four-part series 8th Fire, host Wab Kinew, from the Ojibways of Onigaming First Nation in Northern Ontario, and now a Winnipeg-based TV journalist, invites us to come "meet the neighbours." It's about time, since many Canadians say they have never met an Aboriginal person. This vibrant kaleidoscopic hour introduces a diverse cast of Indigenous characters living in cities. They are united in a shared bond as Canada's First Peoples and in their determination to reassert their culture within a wider population of non-Indigenous Canadians.
