November 24, 2012
submit to reddit

Wab offers a thought-provoking look at the First Nations stereotypes he hears all the time - and why people need to stop using them.

Wab, host of the Doc Zone series 8th Fire, is also a CBC News Winnipeg reporter on CBC Television, and a hip-hop artist, named by the Winnipeg Free Press as one of the top artists to watch from Manitoba. Kinew has won an Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Award for his hip-hop and an ImagineNative Film and Media Arts Festival award for his journalism work for CBC News. He was also nominated for a Future Leaders of Manitoba award in 2010.

Doc Zone series 8th Fire begins Jan. 12 on CBC-TV. 8th Fire, a new programming initiative from CBC, is an extensive look at the state of Canada's relationship with Aboriginal Peoples. Beginning Jan. 12, a four-part DOC ZONE series will be complemented by an extensive website and in-depth programming, features and stories on CBC Radio One and CBC News.
