Indigenous kids displaced by 2 natural disasters share classes, lessons about life
The last time Jason Pruden lived in Lake St. Martin, he was only seven years old. He's now 14 and knows what it's like to lose everything.
At a rundown school sprayed with graffiti on Ness Avenue in Winnipeg, Pruden is sharing his experiences of being forced from his home and losing everything with five new tornado-displaced classmates from Long Plain First Nation.
He's among 136 students from Lake St. Martin who are still waiting for their community to be rebuilt after the flood of 2011.
