“In the early 1970s, the First Nations people of Manitoba came together to reject Prime Minister Trudeau’s controversial White Paper written in 1969. From this historic movement came an influential position paper, Wahbung, Our Tomorrows.
This book explores the history of Wahbung and how it was a catalyst for First Nations peoples’ right to self-determination. A teacher’s guide and the documentary film, Our Tomorrows, Today: Wahbung 1971 are also included.” // @mfnerc website // While @justinpjtrudeau could not attend the grand opening of Canada’s first school system under First Nation jurisdiction in Manitoba, my work on reserve this week wouldn’t have been possible without his government, correcting what should have been, from his father and all of ours too. #servingmfnerc
