Narrated by host and social justice activist George Stroumboulopoulos, First Contact takes six average Canadians, all with strong opinions about Indigenous Peoples, on a unique 28-day journey into Indigenous Canada. Leaving their everyday lives behind the six will travel deep into Winnipeg, Nunavut, Alberta, Northern Ontario, and the coast of BC to visit Indigenous communities. The journey will turn the six participants’ lives upside down, challenging their perceptions and confronting their opinions about a world they never imagined they would see.
