08. Urban Path

Country Available: Canada, USA

Per capita, more aboriginals live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, than any other city in Canada. Many are marginalized, putting big pressure on the public purse. This segment of Venturing Forth looks at the lives of three First Nations Canadians living in Winnipeg. One is a student, one an unemployed potential trainee and another a newly employed worker. All three have aspirations; and all face significant obstacles. We examine the stresses on the public system, as well as on individuals looking to move away from reliance on government coffers, and toward jobs that will give them independence.

Locations: Winnipeg, Manitoba.
