This educational documentary short, Heartspeak about Shannen's Dream, tells the story of "Shannen's Dream" and captures the process as we join together to carry on her vision. Shannen Koostachin had a dream--that all First Nation children should be able to get an education in clean, "comfy" schools just as non-Native children. Tragically, the 15-year-old Cree youth from Attawapiskat died in a car crash on June 1, 2010. Shannen was one of the student leaders in the Attawapiskat School Campaign--a fight to get a grade school built for 400 children attending classes in portables on a contaminated brownfield. In her short life, 'Shannen's Dream' has inspired national interest to carry on the fight.

Help Make Shannen's Dream a reality! Get involved. Support First Nation school children so that they will have the same education rights as children in the provincial system.
