The Aboriginal Education Centre, in association with Cinema Politica presents, 'Our People Will Be Healed: A Brighter Future through Education, Culture, and Tradition.’ This is a documentary screening that will be followed by a discussion with Director Alanis Obomsawin.

Friday, March 23 at 7:00 PM
Aboriginal Education Centre
16 Phin Avenue (One block south of the Donlands Subway Station)

The film is about Norway House Cree Nation that sits more than 450 km north of Winnipeg and is one of Manitoba's largest First Nations communities. The community has a focus on innovation, self-determination and sustainability. It is home to a remarkable education centre and a range of community-managed industries, but the legacy of colonial policies and the traumas of both the residential school and the crisis around murdered and missing women remain deeply felt. With Our ‘People Will Be Healed’, Alanis Obomsawin shows us a potential pathway forward with these successful stories of Indigenous self-determination and Indigenous sovereignty alongside Canada.
