Conne River stories

Conne River is Newfoundland’s only aboriginal reserve.

While we may not hear about it much in the news, something remarkable is happening in this community in Bay D’Espoir.

For decades, people in Conne River were forced to suppress their culture because of colonial racist policies.

But now the people are bringing their culture, tradition and language back to life.

At the centre of this revival are the children.

Here are pictures and audio stories from the CBC’s Beth Macdonell’s visit to Conne River.
