The Red Road Project has worked in Collaboration with Barry Bernard, of Ni’newey Productions to produce a series of videos featuring our Red Road Youth; regarding the Seven Sacred Teachings. Each video, the youth are asked questions about why they believe the teaching they’re discussing is vital in our culture. The series also features elder, Lawrence Wells of Membertou First Nation, and our Coordinators Tammy Bernard, Millbrook First Nation, and Geordy Marshall, Eskasoni First Nation. You can check out the videos on our Youtube or Facebook Page “ The Red Road Project,” OR copy and paste the videos below to your search bar.
