The site pursues the same goals as the television series, to connect Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures, and to dispel myths about First Nations and life on the reserve. The digital component will be a tool that will allow online users to deepen their knowledge of the Wahgoshig way of life. They’ll be able to immerse themselves in the intellectual and emotional world of our Francophone participants by reading the blog where they recount their day-to-day life on the reserve and meetings with their hosts. By watching the 1-minute videos recorded by the Indigenous participants, users will have the opportunity to discover Indigenous customs and beliefs from within and through a multifaceted approach. The site will also feature a True or False game, as well as an historical component.
