They called us Savages
Written by Marie-Josée Tardif & Dominique Rankin
A powerful and inspiring life story in an era marked by conflict, natural disasters, denunciation of sexual abuse and the fight against racism...
T8aminik (Dominique) Rankin is one of the last Native American hereditary chiefs. Born in the forests of northwestern Quebec, his training as a young medecine man began at the age of seven, culminating fifty years later with his full induction into the Circle of Elders.
Survivor of the terrible era of "residential schools of the little savages," T8aminik delivers a vibrant testimony about life, respect, forgiveness and healing.
