Children and youth have a voice and can teach others about reconciliation, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the importance of culturally-based equity for Aboriginal young people. 

The 7th Generation Our Ancestors Prayed For is a short documentary style film that features the voices of First Nations, Métis, Inuit and non-Aboriginal children and youth. The film makes up part of the {Re}conciliation Film Project, which is a collaborative initiative between the Caring Society and Productions Cazabon on a multi-media children and youth response campaign to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Call to Action.

Thank you to the Canada Council for the Arts, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, the Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, United Church of Canada and the Presbyterian Church in Canada for their support in this initiative.
