Six weeks ago, 17 students entered the summer journalism program at First Nations University. They came to learn more about journalism and figure out if this is the career for them. Ten of the students are Aboriginal, 7 are non-Aboriginal.

CBC Saskatchewan producer Merelda Fiddler teamed them up to create the show:
"What Do Indians Want?"

The students look at language, sports, culture, stereotypes and the Treaties, to ask that question. The idea took shape after a discussion about the Idle No More movement - and what students thought that movement was about. So the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students were paired up to look at each story through their own lens. The result was an understanding that while we are different, many of the things we want are the same. You can listen to the show here, and it will be played on CBC Radio One between 4pm and 6pm, June 21 2013.
Happy National Aboriginal Day.
