8th Fire, a new programming initiative from CBC, is an extensive look at the state of Canada’s relationship with Aboriginal Peoples. Beginning Jan. 12, a four-part DOC ZONE series will be complemented by an extensive website and in-depth programming, features and stories on CBC Radio One and CBC News.
8TH Fire draws from an Anishinaabe prophecy that declares now is the time for Aboriginal peoples and the settler community to come together and build the ‘8TH Fire’ of justice and harmony.
