"Generations of Native children were taught in schools that to be Native was somehow wrong. Native Canadians now have control over their own system of formal education. In this film, we meet three remarkable educators who are leading younger Natives along the path of enlightenment."

"The Learning Path (1991) praises the resilience of those who, often by assigning muteness to their pain, while keeping the voices of their peoples alive in memory, survived the brutality of the residential school system and have devoted their lives to the self-determination of their peoples and to education in their own communities."
