On this episode of Nation to Nation: There’s a story Randy Kakegamick tells about the neglect he faced as a child.
It was late one night and his mom was out so he took off wandering the streets of Ottawa.
A drunk man chased him into an alley and attacked him thinking his bag of white cookies was cocaine.
He was eight-years-old. The Ojibway-Cree man never stopped running until about three years ago.
He was in jail, a familiar place for most of his adult life.
