Breaking the bottle

Just over two years ago, lying in a dark room, sleeping off a hangover, Mike Scott says that he would never have pictured jetting off to Hawaii to speak at the World Indigenous Education Conference.

Starting on May 19th Scott, who is originally from the very small Sturgeon Lake First Nation in Saskatchewan, Canada will be bringing his life story and campaign of 'Sober is Sexi' to the global conference as a presenter and facilitator.

But as he told us --- it wasn't an easy journey.
