8TH FIRE is a special four-part series and provocative journey through Aboriginal country, highlighting the urgent need to fix Canada's 500 year-old relationship with Indigenous peoples-a relationship still mired in colonialism, conflict and denial. With an energetic pace and stunning landscapes, 8TH Fire propels viewers beyond prejudice, stereotypes and misunderstandings to encounter a surprising new generation of Aboriginal Canadians who are reclaiming both their culture and their confidence. More than half of them live in cities, while those still struggling on reserves-some in Third World conditions-are demanding a share of the vast mineral and energy resources in their midst. And the Canadian justice system is backing them up. 8TH Fire presents a coast-to-coast perspective. On a B.C. reserve, we taste high-end wine and hear from a Donald Trump-style Chief who believes the best relationships are based on business models. In Winnipeg, an award-winning hip-hop trio escapes the gang culture. In Quebec, we walk-along with a surgeon doing a 4,000 km trek to convince First Nation school kids to stay in school and believe in their dreams.
