This theme comprises film excerpts that give a voice to Aboriginal youth – young people who dream of leaving, confronted by the disappearance of traditional values and the difficulty of living in a world made by non-Aboriginals, and who are, sometimes, condemned to a tragic fate.
A list of related NFB films, written resources and Web sites is made available in this section. It presents additional information on the underlying subjects to this theme. The list is not meant to be definitive or complete but rather a guide to assist you in learning more about the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada.
