Mi'kmaq filmmaker and mother, Catherine Anne Martin takes a reflective journey into the extended family of Nova Scotian Mi'kmaq society. Members of her community share their stories about the recovery of Indigenous values, particularly through the teachings of elders. The wisdom of experience and the collective responsibilities of the Mi'kmaq community play a major role in the way the children are raised. An enlightening and inspiring resource for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences who are looking for ways to strengthen and explore their own families and traditions.
