Summary, etc.:
Six short documentaries present profiles, personal stories and perspectives from survivors and today's youth providing a comprehensive picture fo the harsh realities of the residential school experience. The National profiles Justice Murray Sinclair, Manitoba?s first Aboriginal judge and the head of the Commission; uncovers the personal stories of survivors both on the ground in Winnipeg and across Canada; and gets up-close with 11-year-old Wanekia Morning Star Cooke to hear the younger generation?s take on the residential school experience. June 2010 marked the first national hearing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, aimed at addressing the painful legacy of residential schools in Canada. First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit survivors began putting their stories on the official record, as the Commission commenced its complex work.
