Bimibatoo-win: Where I Ran
Charlie Bittern is a residential school survivor from Berens River First Nations in Manitoba.
In 1967, when he was 19 years old, the principal of Birtle Indian Residential School forced him to run 80 km through a brutal blizzard. It took almost nine hours.
55 years later, Bittern embarks on the same journey – but this time, he’s surrounded by his family.
Bittern hopes that retracing his steps will help him heal from his experience, while spreading awareness for all residential school survivors and all the children who never made it home.

Run as One: The Journey of the Front Runners
In 1967, Winnipeg hosted the fifth Pan American Games. 10 young Indigenous athletes from First Nations across Manitoba were selected to run the Pan Am torch from Minneapolis to Winnipeg — an 800 km, once-in-a-lifetime journey.
But just before the athletes arrived at the opening ceremonies, the torch was taken from them. It was handed to a non-Indigenous athlete, who carried the torch into the stadium.
The runners were sent to a diner across the street, where they watched the opening ceremonies on TV.
50 years later, the runners reunite at that same Winnipeg restaurant to share their memories, and to discuss the injustice and disappointment they faced at the end of their journey.
