Summary, etc.:
8th fire is a provocative, high-energy journey through Aboriginal country showing why we need to fix Canada's 500 year old relationship with indigenous people: a relationship mired in colonialism, conflict, and denial. The title of the series "8th fire" comes from the Anishinaabe (Ojibway) prophecy of the Seven fires, with the eighth fire being an era of spiritual illumination.
Indigenous is the city: Introduces a diverse cast of indigenous characters living in the 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-indeigenous Canadians. --container.
