Gimikwenden Ina is a song taken from Corey Payette’s Children of God. In this musical, Tommy and Julia, the children of an Oji-Cree family, are sent to a residential school in Northern Ontario. As the school tries to “take the Indian out of the child,” Tommy struggles not to forget his language, his family, his culture.
