This story was a co-production between CBC Focus North and the CBC Human Affairs series Man Alive. A Dene man from Lutselk'e, NWT was planning his wedding, and wanted to burn sweetgrass in the church as part of the ceremony. But some elders objected, saying that bringing Dene spiritual traditions into the Catholic Church was wrong.

The story examined the ways First Nations people across Canada are trying to retain their Christian beliefs in combination with the traditions of their ancestors.
