Our Home on Native Land - Pauingassi

CPAC’s Jonathan Craven visits Pauingassi, a First Nations reserve located 300 kilometres north of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Jonathan speaks with Pauingassi residents about key issues affecting quality of life on the reserve, such as poverty, alcohol abuse, and alcohol-related violence.

He also interviews leaders in the Pauingassi community about steps being taken to improve these conditions, including Eric Kennedy (a supervisor at Southeast Child and Family Services), David Phillips (a member of the defence council for the Pauingassi court docket), Louis Young (the Pauingassi health director), and Jim Leonard (the principal of Omiishosh Memorial School).

This documentary series takes viewers inside five diverse Native communities across the country for an intimate look at what’s shaping, challenging, improving, and impeding life among Canada’s Native population.
