CBC Doc Series: 8th Fire
The Anishinaabe nation has a prophecy, that Aboriginal Peoples and non-aboriginals would go through the era of seven fires, before finally coming to the 8th fire, a time of peace and cooperation between different peoples.
The new CBC documentary series 8th Fire goes beyond stereotypes to take a closer look at aboriginal life in Canada. It also examines the relationship between First Nations and non-native people in this country.
Susan speaks with CBC host Wab Kinew about the series.
You can see the first part of the series, as well as profiles of Aboriginal Canadians in the series, at http://www.cbc.ca/doczone/8thfire/.
