The file contains an open forum presentation by Ron-Wayne Hoekstiza. Hoekstiza, an Ojibwa man who was removed as a youth from his family by social services and raised by a Dutch couple in Europe, discusses his personal struggles to reclaim his identity, his views on the Royal Commission, and his views on Aboriginal peoples. Following the presentation Commissioner Sillett thanks Hoekstiza for his comments and discusses the situation in northern Labrador and Davis Inlet which he referenced, and where she is originally from.
