The Secret Path Film: CBC

Posted: November 22, 2016

Echoing the TRC's Calls to Action regarding education, New Brunswick has set an educational goal of teaching 100% of NB students K-12 about residential schools and treaties by 2025/26. To support this goal we have decided to share Gord Downie's (lead singer of The Tragically Hip) animated film "The Secret Path" (click blue title to access website). This film is based on the true story of Charlie Wenjack, a First Nation student who died during his escape from a residential school in Canada. Please advise, contents are emotionally sensitive and may not be suitable for younger audiences. For more information about and support with teaching about residential schools and or treaty education, please contact any member of the First Nations Education team for ASD-N.

* Note: The first hour of the video covers the entire album/animated film, the second hour covers a panel discussion on reconciliation.
