Almonte resident Jennifer Kingsley's documentary on the fly-in "bush university" called Dechinta airs on CBC's The Sunday Edition

In 2010, local resident Jennifer Kingsley, an experienced canoeist and traveller in northern Canada was invited to teach at a new fly-in university called the Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning. Dechinta means "bush" in Dene languages. She returned in 2011 to prepare a documentary about this school for CBC's The Sunday Edition. Her documentary was broadcast on Sunday, October 9, 2011, and it is called New Tribe. We thought that Millstone readers would be interested in the story. It is a great coup for a young documentary maker to be accepted by CBC for such a prestigious program.
