CBC celebrates 75 years of Aboriginal Coverage


To celebrate CBC's 75th birthday, a look at how aborginal issues have been covered on CBC Radio. Michael Enright's co-host is Darrell Dennis. Darrell is a native actor and writer and CBC Radio host. The coverage of aboriginal issues on CBC Radio in many ways mirrors the attitudes and beliefs of Canadian society. On the one hand there was fascination with what was seen as an exotic way of life; on the other an assumption of dysfunction. And underlying it all was a belief that given enough time, aboriginal people would be absorbed and integrated into the larger society.
