The premier of the APTN series First Contact is generating a lot of discussion.
It takes six non-Indigenous Canadians on a 28 day journey to communities, and cities to challenge their preconceptions of who First Nation, Metis and Inuit people are.
Episode one shows the harsh reality of what some Canadians think of Indigenous peoples.
Some say they shouldn’t be given this forum.
Tamara watched the show with a Dene Elder who says the first episode is triggering, but at the same time, gives him hope.
