Two Aboriginal communities half a nation apart - one in Southern Ontario’s matriarchal stronghold of Six Nations, the other in British Columbia’s beautiful, but frequently fire-ravaged, Okanagan – are both dependent upon the services of their volunteer fire departments to keep them safe.

Half of the Six Nations’ fire departments’ members are women, including twins Jesse and Dakota Brant, the latter of whom is haunted by the memory of the arson that almost cost her sister her life.

BC’s Jenelle Brewer shares her struggle to overcome addictions acquired during her tumultuous teen years, to become of the three female members of the Okanagan fire department.

The women at both fire departments have found inspiration within their strong family and community connections, and in turn, continue to inspire others.
