The Attawapiskat First Nation reserve is far removed from the rest of society, and in trouble. Contaminated fish and mouldy buildings add to the hardships experienced daily by the people of the remote community. In this video we visit the reserve and meet some of the residents. We hear the story of Shannen Koostachin. Shannen had a dream - safe and comfy schools and culturally based education for First Nations children and youth. She worked tirelessly to try to convince the federal government to give First Nations children a proper education before tragically passing away at the age of 15 years old in 2010. Her dream lives on. Other people are also trying to make a difference. Canada AM follows 12-year-old Wesley Prankard to Attawapiskat to see him make an important announcement. He explains why he is building the children a playground.
