by Gail Maurice

Aboriginal Voices, Apr. 1997, v. 4, no. 2, p. 52

In the past, Aboriginal people were not allowed to own land or vote, yet they were allowed to fight alongside their non-Native countrymen in the Armed Forces. In this review of Loretta Todd's docu-drama Forgotten Warriors, author Gail Maurice highlights Todd's filmmaking and the story she tells, which exposes Canada's shameful history in dealing with Aboriginal veterans.
