Quote:
"I think an Aboriginal treatment of a young woman having a baby is definitely not as stigmatized as it would be in mainstream Canadian culture, where having a baby is bad because it's going to kill her future. That's the end of the story. I don't think it should be so black-and-white... Part of what got me thinking about that was seeing all my cousins who still live there [La Ronge, Saskatchewan], and are getting pregnant before they're 20, and how it seems to be treated differently ... how different cultural contexts mean that teen pregnancy is looked at in a different way."
