Raymond Robinson, who was born in Churchill, Man. where his Air Force father was a station manager, moved to Cross Lake First Nation in the mid-60s at 19. And though he confessed to deep-seated anger towards the racism he experienced in residential school, and in various communities, he urged Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people alike to reflect on how to make love a driving force.

“Let’s honestly look at ourselves,” Robinson urged. “Do we come from respect every single moment of our life? Do we utilize peace when we meet people and make decisions? Let’s not fool ourselves and say, ‘Yes we do.’ If we went by these rules, by this conduct, our world wouldn’t be where it is. That’s why our world is so chaotic.

“The Red Road teaches us to have kindness, mutual respect, humility, honour, to help out our neighbours, and to pick up the person that has fallen... It only takes one spark; when people see that spark, they’re drawn to it, and it keeps lighting and lighting and lighting. The world is coming to one light.”"
