  • 1994 ----- color ----- 58 min ----- vhs///
  • Provides first hand evidence how First Nation communities in northwestern Ontario are seeking healing solutions to the suicide epidemic among young people. Presents sad tales of child abuse, alcoholism and suicide attempts along with pleas from those left behind for relief--to being the process of healing by bringing hurts out into the open. It also challenges all communities to reach out and seek better forms of communication and dialogue across generations. Leaders of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation also present what they have learned about the process of healing--not just at a personal level, but spiritually, as communities.
