Trailbreakers: Chef David Wolfman

Chef David Wolfman serves traditional foods in unexpected ways. It must be working because Cooking with the Wolfman wrapped it’s 8th television season, and he’s a culinary arts professor at George Brown College, teaching a new generation of Native chefs. All while infusing his cooking with advice on healthy eating, exploring Aboriginal foods and practicing what he preaches by taking his techniques out into the community. Along the way he’s created a new food trend: Aboriginal Fusion.

Trailbreakers Trailbreakers Rina Bright Aug 8 and 10 Aug 8, 2012 | 27:29Rina Bright grew up on the Sandy Bay First Nation, a community where the doctor showed up once a week, and the dental office was a school hallway. Today she's a teacher at Children of the Earth School in Winnipeg, dedicated to a special program aimed at Aboriginal students who want to become health care workers. In this unique model, Rina stays with her students for four years, as they get the chance to work in clinics and assist in surgeries. Rina believes this program is a powerful way to increase the number of Aboriginal people working in health care in Canada. And it's a program we desperately need, especially when you consider that Aboriginal people make up more than 4% of Canada's population, but less than 0.25% of the physicians.

Trailbreakers Trailbreakers Wabano and Allison Fisher Aug 1 and 3 Aug 1, 2012 | 27:29Wabano: It’s a health clinic to some and a way of life to others. Wabano is Cree for New Beginnings and under the guidance of Executive Director Allison Fisher it is becoming exactly that: a place where Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal alike are able to get their body and soul together and begin anew. On this episode of Trailbreakers you’ll discover how Allison has taken a small clinic in Ottawa and turned it into a medical centre blending Western and First Nations medical practices, gives people job skills, and even hits the streets of Ottawa’s less fortunate neighbourhoods to reach out to the people normally left on the margins of society.

Just one of the innovative new industries there. But, does it serve the needs of the actual rez residents? And, are jobs in restaurants really what Indigenous folks should be striving for?

Moving traditional Art into the mainstream can bring both celebrity and condemnation.

Trailbreakers Making Waves (Part 2): 'Blackstone' Jan 19, 2012 | 27:31If Corrine is making waves, it’s nothing compared to Ron E. Scott and his television series 'Blackstone.' The Rez Drama takes on the big issues facing many reserves: violence, substance abuse, and corruption; all things that many Aboriginal folks feel shouldn’t be brought out into the open, never mind made into a TV show. But the Gemini award winning show is hugely popular and back for a 2nd season. How Art is shaking up Indian country!

Trailbreakers - Justice and the Law (Part 1): Don WormeJan 12, 2012 | 25:00Trailbreakers Justice and the Law (Part 1): Don Worme Audio
Trailbreakers Justice and the Law (Part 1): Don Worme Jan 12, 2012 | 25:00Don Worme is one of the great defenders of the Aboriginal peoples of Saskatchewan. Don is the first lawyer most Native people in Saskatchewan will call if they come in conflict with the law. A modern day warrior of the courtroom; in fact his licence plate reads WARYER. But Don’s involvement in the legal system comes from a place of deep pain: as a child he watched the murder of his mother and sisters. A pariah to some, a hero to many, Don takes us into the world of Aboriginal justice. "This item has been altered to change some incorrect information. The line removed implied there were Saskatchewan police officers prosecuted for leaving Aboriginal men outside in T-shirts in winter. This is not the case. Don Worme was actively involved in the Stonechild Inquiry, which was not a criminal procedure."
