Synopsis: This week on "Learn Me Something," Aaron and Rich delve into the public inquiry on the missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada.
This is what it means to be born Indigenous, in Canada, in the 21st century: You are twice as likely to die in infancy. You will be nine times more likely to be sexually assaulted as a child and three times more likely to drop out from school. You will be twice as likely to lose your job. If you have a job, you will earn 60 per cent less.
