We’ve been bringing you a series of short stories from the Indigenous community in Yellowknife, Canada exploring alcohol use, addiction, resilience and healing. The “Turning Points” project, from the Global Reporting Center, is a series produced, directed and authored by Indigenous people who wanted to share their stories. This is Catherine Lafferty’s — a story of native language, education, family, abuse, alcoholism, and coming home.
