First Nations Films: NANABOZHUNG, Vanishing Link

Film is important to us as storytellers... go to link and watch the previews... Trace

How can First Nations continue to survive in the urban environment? How can they survive at all after reserve and residential schools. First Nations are not the problem in our society. They may just be the solution to the problem.


NANABOZHUNG - We Are the Solution - documentary-  2016 - 80 min.
After being 'rounded up' into reserves, after the imposition of the Indian Act and their forced re-education in the residential schools, can these First Nations people continue to survive
in this urban environment? Can we afford to allow their culture to die when it puts the preservation of the environment above all else? From an emotional and Intellectual point of view we come to realize that 'First Nations are not the problem. They are the solution to the problem'. Directed by Lia Williams, Produced by Guy Hibbert (149.00)


VANISHING LINK - documentary -  retracing her roots! - 2007 - 60 min.
A very personal and emotionally moving program about one woman's "return" to her spiritual roots and native identity. As this exciting story unfolds through the woman's direct experiences the viewer follows her journey and so travels deeper into her "return". Woven together with riveting stories from Elders brought to life through stirring traditional art, dances, songs, and crafts. Vanishing Link explores native spirituality through the oral traditions of tribal elders while following a unique spiritual quest. A must-see for all audiences.

  1. Both of these look good. I've heard of Vanishing Link before. I would hope that seeing a woman go in more from the outside to rediscover something she lost would help make it relatable to more people, to see everything from the ground up, so to speak.

  2. I agree Shannon. The story is a beginning for her and she doesn't know what she was not taught until she learns it.
