28 October 2008 - Winneway, Qc, Canada. Elizabeth Makimoot, 78, live alone in her house. Speaking only her native language, she feels lonely. Very few of the younger generation still speaks  Anishnabe language, creating a gap with the elders and contribute to loss of traditional values where women were respected. First Nation Poeple believed that women share the same spirits that Mother Earth.
