Part of
After the Apology

Using recordings of Heather Archibald, an activist and poet, this documentary talks to the issues that need to be dealt with for the community to heal. Woven with men singing a chant and the young jingle dancer who calls to the water and Mother Earth to help make people stand up and pay attention.

Ginger Cote is Algonquin from Kitigan Zibi. She's a mother of three, a student at Carelton University, and does promotions for the Cairos Blanket Exercise.
