Dying for an Education
In a special report this week, CBC Thunder Bay is asking what has changed since the days of residential school? The series is called: Dying for an Education and today, we have an artist's answer to that question.
Roy Kakegamic lives in Sandy Lake. About 20 years ago he was a student at Trent University in Peterborough. That's when he first heard the story of Charlie Wenjack, a little boy from this area who died while running away from residential school in Kenora
It's a story the CBC's Jody Porter is re-visiting today. She joins Voyage North host Cathy Alex with more about Charlie, from an artist's perspective.
