Saving Lives with Canoeing on BBC World Service


Kwumut Lelum's own Bill Yoachim was recently interviewed by BBC Radio's World Service Outlook. In this feature program, Bill talks about the prevalence of suicide in First Nations reserve communities and its roots in the systematic destruction of culture through residential schools and indian hospitals. He shares the impact of loss from his own personal experiences and how the Tribal Journeys program is rebuilding cultural pride and self-worth for aboriginal children in care.
