Beating the Streets traces six years in the lives of Marilyn Brighteyes and Lance Marty, two inner-city Aboriginal teenagers struggling to turn their lives around. And it is the story of Joe Cloutier, the teacher -- and former dropout -- determined to help them. In Beating the Streets, Marilyn and Lance candidly discuss the abuse and violence that drove them into prostitution and drug dealing. The video also introduces Joe's innovative approach, combining alternative education and popular theatre as a way to get young people off the streets. The film begins in 1986, when Joe creates the Inner City Drama Association (ICDA) for teens like Marilyn and Lance. They participate in theatre workshops led by actors like Tantoo Cardinal Dances with Wolves and their plays explore important issues like substance abuse, family violence, suicide and racism. Performances lead to discussions with the audience in an effort to seek healthy solutions. Then, in 1993, Lance encourages Joe to take on the immense challenge of opening an alternative school -- Inner City High -- for teens at risk. And we witness a remarkable transformation in Lance and Marilyn as they become leaders at the school

Not afraid of much, Waneek even took on Water Polo Canada when she was unexpectedly cut from the team after Sydney. She discusses the stereotypes Aboriginal athletes face and the invaluable guidance given to her by fellow Mohawk Olympian Alwyn Morris. Following his advice, Waneek has worked hard to share her achievements in hopes of inspiring others to reach for their dreams."--Container

"In 1953, Fred Sasakamoose, a Cree man from northern Saskatchewan, became the first status Indian to play in the NHL. Known for his deadly slapshot, Fred was sometimes called "the reluctant Blackhawk" because he almost refused a contract with the Chicago team in favour of returning to his Sandy Lake reserve. After only one season, he chose to leave the NHL, but went on to play with the WCHL's Kamloops Chiefs, where he was named honourary chief of the Kamloops Indian Band. When he returned home, he became Chief to his own people for six years. Fred discusses the difficulty of overcoming his residential school experience, his battle with alcohol as a young man, and the work he now does to heal substance abuse in his community.
