DFC High School create Waa Nish Kaan CBC Listen series

Indigenous students from Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School have created a new CBC Listen series titled Waa Nish Kaan, which means “Wake Up.” Students worked with CBC Thunder Bay to produce Waa Nish Kaan, which highlights the challenges and realities that Indigenous students face when leaving their families and coming to Thunder Bay to complete their high school education. The series begins with stories about the Wake the Giant movement. In the process of creating the series, students learned about storytelling, writing scripts, and recording interviews. “Working on the project lets us show our love for school, the Wake the Giant movement, our friends and families, as well as the Indigenous communities that we come from,” said the students in a group statement.
