Learn about the 1850 Sandy Lake Tragedy and the struggle for Anishinaabeg to survive amidst forced assimilation and tragedy. In the winter of 1850, many Ojibwe people died as a result of actions by the Federal Government not upholding its treaty obligations. Today, many communities join at Sandy Lake to remember their ancestors and to tell their story.

This story is part of a series of short videos called Ogichidaa Storytellers.
