As a Canadian reviewer of documentaries, I will admit I was getting worn down and forlorn over a seemingly endless stream of depressing documentaries on Canadian aboriginal life.  Alcoholism, drug abuse, poor housing, officially mismanaged salmon fisheries including a proliferation of salmon farms destroying aboriginal fish stocks and of course residential schools.
