This film follows a 3 month journey taken by an Aboriginal Youth Leadership group in BC’s Sea to Sky corridor. Left inspired and empowered by an UrbanInk slam poetry workshop, the youth created work around two chosen themes: Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women and What It Is Like to Be Aboriginal Today. They rehearsed and then performed spoken word and poetry in schools throughout the corridor at the May 1st, 24 Hour Drum event. Twelve days later they performed to an audience of over 400 at the CAP (Canadian Association of Principals) Conference in Whistler. Now, there is no stopping them!
