The Journey Begins #101

Saturday, April 11, 03:00 pm on FNX NAT

Duration: 0:44:59

Description: The six travelers begin their journey in heart of Canada; Winnipeg, Manitoba. Here they meet prominent Indigenous activist Michael Redhead Champagne who sheds some light on the road ahead. In Winnipeg their journey includes working alongside two community driven movements; the Bear Clan patrol which works to keep Winnipeg's notorious North End streets safe, and Drag the Red which takes on the sobering task of helping to solve cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women by searching the river, and the riverbank, for remains or other evidence. From Winnipeg the group travels over 2,000 km north to the remote Inuit community of Kimmirut where they discover life on the land is more intense than they ever could have imagined.
