'Got Land, Thank An Indian' Sweater Creates Controversy

13 year old Tenelle Starr from the Star Blanket reserve wore a bright pink sweater to school last week that said, 'Got Land, Thank An Indian.'  She was told by her teacher to turn it inside out because people were offended.  When she wore it again a few days ago, it prompted a meeting between Balcarres School and the Band Council.  Sheila speaks with Tenelle and council member Sheldon Poitras.
