About the TV Series
Bones of Crows is a multi-generational epic; a story of resilience and strength told through the eyes of Cree Matriarch Aline Spears. Removed from their family home and forced into Canada’s residential school system, young musical prodigy Aline and her siblings are plunged into a struggle for survival. Over the next hundred years, Aline and her descendants fight for a more just future.
Supported by her daughter Taylor, a determined lawyer, and granddaughter Percy, the family’s creative force, Aline must find the strength to step into her role as family Matriarch and confront the scars of the past. In the face of a rapidly shifting and hostile world, Aline's remarkable journey moves through memories of residential school, perilous adventures across snowy traplines, and classified London bureaus where she works as a code talker in the Second World War.
A sweeping drama grounded in historical truth, Bones of Crows weaves together underrepresented moments in Canadian and Indigenous history, including the Indigenous contributions to WWII, the ongoing cases of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
