Jordan River Anderson, the Messenger
True North | True North | High School Outreach
Left to languish in a hospital for all of his short life while government agencies ducked responsibility, Jordan River Anderson would ultimately leave behind a legacy for Indigenous children. However, Jordan’s Principle - which declares that First Nations children must receive equitable access to services - might’ve been an empty gesture if not for activists’ dogged efforts to hold the Canadian government to its word. In turns infuriating and empowering, Alanis Obomsawin’s 53rd film is essential viewing.
