Heartspeak about Shannen's Dream
This educational documentary short, Heartspeak about Shannen's Dream, tells the story of "Shannen's Dream" and captures the process as we join together to carry on her vision. Shannen Koostachin had a dream--that all First Nation children should be able to get an education in clean, "comfy" schools just as non-Native children. Tragically, the 15-year-old Cree youth from Attawapiskat died in a car crash on June 1, 2010. Shannen was one of the student leaders in the Attawapiskat School Campaign--a fight to get a grade school built for 400 children attending classes in portables on a contaminated brownfield. In her short life, 'Shannen's Dream' has inspired national interest to carry on the fight.
Help Make Shannen's Dream a reality! Get involved. Support First Nation school children so that they will have the same education rights as children in the provincial system.
