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'.

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.ReplyDelete
