Freedom Road is a five-part documentary series that tells the inspiring story of Shoal Lake 40 Anishinaabe First Nation and their battle to build a road, after their community was forcibly relocated and cut off from the mainland over 100 years ago, so that water could be diverted to the city of Winnipeg. Director and Shoal Lake 40 member Angelina McLeod uses an innovative, community-driven approach to storytelling that highlights the community’s dignity, strength and perseverance, as they take back control of their narrative and their future in the process of building Freedom Road.


You will be guided through an exploration of local Indigenous cultures, histories, themes, and issues to help you deepen your understanding of Truth and Reconciliation and respectful cultural awareness. All are welcome to participate in special events and join the conversation.

This an important week as Wednesday, Sept 30 is Orange Shirt Day: Every Child Matters, and Sunday, Oct 4 is Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Awareness Day.

We hope you will walk with us.
