Description du film [en anglais] :
« 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. »

Citations sur The Learning Path [en anglais]

« The Learning Path is not a documentary about victimisation or oppression but an account of survival and renewal. The film bears witness to injustice, but it does not present the women's pain for the viewer's voyeuristic gaze. Rather The Learning Path uses autobiographical accounts as a means of displacing the outsiders' perspectives so familiar to us from archival and documentary images of Aboriginal people. »
-- Marian Bredin (source)

« 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. »
