ELA A30 A6 Macleans Article 1967 – The Lonely Death of Chanie Wenjack
Here’s the original article that was published about the death of this young boy, who ran away from a Residential School and died trying to walk home.
This report of the story is what prompted Gord Downie, of The Tragically Hip, to develop poetry about the event that eventually became an album of songs, a graphic novel and an animated cartoon.
Here is the full animated video. It is about 40 minutes long and followed by other discussions on the topic.
