Cultural Revival of Saugeen First Nation

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Anishinaabe culture is traditionally passed through generations with songs and stories. But when the Canadian government introduced the Indian Act in 1876 and created residential schools, Indigenous people were barred from practicing their religion and culture, leaving a gap in these oral stories. Southwestern Ontario Hubs journalist Mary Baxter and field producer Jeyan Jeganathan take a look at how audio recordings from 80 years ago are giving voices back to those who were silenced for decades.
