He embraces his culture as a aboriginal person, sadly, these days wearing your culture has lead people to discriminate, bully, and outcast. Many young first nation boys experience this TODAY. The Boy And The Braid will bring you to tears, then give you hope as we tell Nathan's story from the inside out. Some people did not survive the residential schools... Some do not survive the EFFECTS of residential schools...
