Kahnawà:ke students share stories from their community | CBC News

These stories are a collaboration between Concordia University’s journalism department, Kahnawake Survival School and CBC Montreal.

CBC Montreal is proud to support a partnership between Concordia University’s journalism department and Kahnawake  Survival School (KSS). The initiative aims to inspire Indigenous students to consider a career in media.

The collaboration comes out of the department’s Institute for Inclusive, Investigative and Innovative Journalism, which is headed by Concordia’s journalist-in-residence and former CBC Montreal radio news anchor, Kristy Snell.

Journalism students at the university mentored students in a Grade 11 film and media class as they developed story ideas, interviewed subjects and produced videos about people in their community. 

Now, some of those students have moved on to post-secondary studies.

CBC Montreal gave their finished stories a home on cbc.ca and on the television newscast.
