Family, sobriety and parenting: an indigenous woman tells her story

We continue our series, ‘Turning Points’: stories produced, directed and told by indigenous people from Yellowknife in Canada’s Northwest Territories, part of an empowerment journalism project in partnership with the Global Reporting Center. Tonight, we hear from Louise Beaulieu, who speaks about being placed in a religious residential school, losing her language and culture, and her struggle with alcoholism.
