About Forgotten Warriors:
“This documentary introduces us to thousands of Indigenous Canadians who enlisted and fought alongside their countrymen and women during World War II, even though they could not be conscripted. Ironically, while they fought for the freedom of others, they were being denied equality in their own country and returned home to find their land seized.
Loretta Todd’s poignant film offers forth the testimony of those who were there, and how they managed to heal.” – from the National Film Board website.
