Family, Identity & Future: David A. Robertson & Jesse Thistle
Originally aired on October 30
Re-release June 03
Reflections on the past lead to remarkable passages of self-discovery in the recently released memoirs of Indigenous authors David A. Robertson and Jesse Thistle. Robertson recounts his storied journey of reconnection with his Cree father and the land they come from, in Black Water: Family, Legacy and Blood Memory; while Thistle guides us through his harrowing battle with drug addiction and broken family relationships, in From the Ashes: My Story of Being Métis, Homeless, and Finding My Way. Meet the men who lived these remarkable lives and who continue to inspire and broaden perspectives.
