Description
"When a young Ojibwa boy named Lester Desjarlais took his own life, the inquest into his death became one of the longest in Manitoba's history, unearthing a story of sexual abuse, family suffering, and, finally tragedy. Award-winning journalist Ruth Teichroeb covered the story, and it was the Native women, themselves survivors of abuse, who taught her about the courage it takes to break the code of silence surrounding abuse."
