"It seems we've been avoiding the hard work for a long, long time -
but not anymore. We're not going to allow this to be punted down to
future generations, and choose what's ultimately the harder path. - Shawn A-in-chut Atleo
Part history lesson, part memoir, the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations takes to the stage to share stories of the people he represents and his own past. In his lecture titled It Feels Like We're On the Cusp, National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo sets out why he believes First Nations peoples are on the cusp of change.
The Institute for Canadian Citizenship's 11th LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium is presented in partnership with the Stratford Festival. It was recorded at the Avon Theatre on August 10, 2013.
