HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Both sides of Kenn Richard’s family come from the original Métis and Francophone settlements along the Red and the Assiniboine River in Manitoba. He is the first of his family to graduate university and has practiced social work within Aboriginal child welfare since the mid-70s. Kenn challenges audiences to reflect on issues impacting Native children and to make a real contribution to their resolution. His five14 talk is titled A Song for the Native Child.

Five14 Talks started in response to requests from young people in care to have a greater voice in shaping public perceptions. The Children’s Aid Foundation created five14 Talks to celebrate Children and Youth in Care Day (May 14, 2015) to give young people in child welfare a voice and and inspire change. five14 Talks is a forum much like TED Talks, where Canada and the world’s leading thinkers in Child Welfare are invited to give a talk in 14 minutes.
