This file contains a presentation by Chief Jean-Charles Pietacho and Sylvie Basile titled "Learning to Sail in Troubled Waters." It touches on youth suicide, the forced relocation in the 1960s of the Montagnais community of Saint-Augustin (Pakuashipi) to the Lower North Shore, and the despair and hopelessness that Aboriginal people experience "with the marginalization that their cultures and lifestyles have suffered for decades." A question-and-answer session with the Commissioners follows the presentation.
