In the Field

In part two of this episode. We go to the village of Oujé Bougamou in Northern Quebec. People across the north are still struggling to recover from the religious residential school experience. Some blame the schools for the loss of aboriginal tradition and culture. They believe the way to move forward is by going back to the old ways. But others have embraced the Christian faith. We tell you why an ancient Cree tradition, the sweat lodge ,has stirred so much controversy in Oujé Bougamou.
