Living Legends: El Salvador

The "Living Legends" program began as a cultural exchange to unite First Nations youth from Canada with Indigenous youth from Latin America. Living Legends: El Salvador chronicles a journey from Canada to El Salvador, focusing on the individual experiences and culture of each participant. We visit their villages, the jungles, and cultural places across Central America to witness the effect that this exchange has had on everyone. Along the way we discover their goals, their troubles, their dreams. As each person begins to overcome the social barriers that leave them isolated, a profound similarity is revealed that transcends all cultures.
