The library's Truth & ReconciliACTION film series, which begins in October, aims to help students, staff, faculty and community members deepen their understanding about Indigenous issues and the truth & reconciliation process.
Join us in the 3rd-floor library theatre on Wednesdays at 2:30 to watch, learn, and discuss.
The first four films are from the CBC's documentary series 8th Fire, which "..draws from an Anishinaabe prophecy that declares now is the time for Aboriginal peoples and the settler community to come together and build the '8th Fire' of justice and harmony."
The final three selections, shown Nov. 1 and 8, are short National Film Board documentaries. Mi'kmaq Family and Song of Eskasoni (Nov. 1) celebrate the Mi'kmaw community. Song of Eskasoni honours the life and work of poet Rita Joe. The final film (Nov. 8), Hi-Ho Mistahey!, is filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin's look at Shannen's Dream, a national campaign to provide equitable access to education for Indigenous children.
Everyone is welcome at the film screenings.
