3rd World Canada

Eight children and their community are left behind to piece together the aftermath of suicide and the legacy of 3rd world conditions imposed on Canada's Native people.

Kitchenuhmaykoosib lnninuwug (the people of the lake ) is a remote Native community bound by reserve laws in the forgotten North of Ontario. This Nation dates back to 5,000 years where bones of their ancestors were discovered on the shores of Big Trout Lake. Today this proud Nation is deeply impoverished in 3rd World Conditions bound by Treaty laws signed by their non-English speaking ancestors. Set in the backdrop of the aftermath of the suicide of three parents, the documentary explores the impact of 3rd world conditions on children and a community's courage in looking after them.
