Our People Will Be Healed (2017 | 1 h 37 min), by Alanis Obomsawin
Our People Will Be Healed, Alanis Obomsawin’s 50th film, reveals how a Cree community in Manitoba has been enriched through the power of education. The Helen Betty Osborne Ininiw Education Resource Centre in Norway House, north of Winnipeg, receives a level of funding that few other Indigenous institutions enjoy. Its teachers help their students to develop their abilities and their sense of pride.
The Right Honourable Paul Martin discusses Indigenous education and the Martin Family Initiative in conversation with Mutsumi Takahashi, CTV Montreal chief news anchor. Following a 30-minute break, starting at 2:00 pm, acclaimed filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin screens her latest film, Our People Will Be Healed, with Q&A. People may attend one or both events. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
