June is National Indigenous History Month. It is a time for all Canadians — Indigenous, non-Indigenous and newcomers — to reflect upon and learn the history, sacrifices, cultures, contributions, and strength of First Nations, Inuit and Metis people. Throughout the month of June, CityNews will profile Indigenous people, and share their stories and voices, so that we can celebrate the difference they have made in their communities and to our country.
Born on the One Arrow Reserve in Saskatchewan, Jackson’s career is unparalleled, not to mention wildly acclaimed, abundantly decorated, and almost ridiculously interesting. Heck, he could be a pub night trivia category all by himself.
“You don’t have to change the whole world, you just have to change your world, and the rest will follow.”
Jackson, 70, is understandably proud of his career in music, film and television; however, it is his extensive charitable work and activism that are arguably his crowning achievements.
