The Canadian Roots is a field trip that takes Canadian students Native communities across Canada. The goal is to “break down stereotypes, open a dialogue, and build honest relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people living on this land.”
The idea is simple: That the lack of unity between First Nations and non-First Nations people hurts our prosperous country. By engaging ”in the teachings, triumphs and daily realities of Inuit, First Nations and Métis communities in Canada” we can help improve those relations.
Canadian Roots has made some great steps towards a better country and for that we applaud them. Congratulations guys. Check out the video clip of the 2009 trip HERE. Check out the teaser for the 2011 trip HERE.
