See GARNETS JOURNEY.COM where you will meet Garnet Angeconeb––an Aboriginal man who has survived a long journey––from the trap line to residential school, to city life––all in the past six decades. On this site, Garnet will tell you stories from his life, in his own voice, in about 30 brief videos, plus one 21-minute biography. It’s like reading a book, except in this case the author is speaking to you.
