Ogoki: Call of the Wild. Part Two.

In this episode, Mum and I arrive back to Ogoki, the isolated Ojibway Reservation in North Ontario where Mum & Dad used to run the local day school in the 70's and 80's. Mum's old friends welcome us. Later, over a cup of tea, Pearl Achneepineshkum shares the tragic story of her brother, Charlie Wenjack. The iconic 1969 Macleans Magazine article which highlighted young Charlie Wenjack's sad death and helped to bring about the closure of the residential schools is read by Pat Laffan. This feature-length documentary was funded by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland, and broadcast on Newstalk in December 2008. (Part One is available on Vimeo). To be continued!
