The Road Forward was inspired by images of First Nations people, taken by street photographer Foncie Pulice who documented the changing face of downtown Vancouver from the 1940‘s to the 1970‘s. 



The Road Forward was further inspired by the groundbreaking movement of the Native Brotherhood of British Columbia, established in 1931 and is recognized as Canada’s oldest active Native organization. The NBBC has been a very powerful voice on fisheries issues, education, the right to vote, improved medical care and better jobs and living conditions at the province’s canneries.

The Road Forward is dedicated to the countless First Nations women who have "disappeared" on B.C.’s Highway of Tears and across Canada. The Native Women’s Association of Canada, there are 582 confirmed cases of missing and murdered First Nations women. The unofficial number over 1,000.


All proceeds raised from the sale of the song and video will be donated to create a scholarship for children of the missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

Long awaited...
The song is amazing; but the DVD is the one I want! Well choreographed and perfect harmonies. It gives me goose bumps when I hear it. Good to see Native Artists collaborating on this masterpiece...Ah-ho

Simone Farber
