Our People Will Be Healed | Alanis Obomsawin | 2017 | 1 h 37 min
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.
This event is part of a project with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, “Let’s Talk about Reconciliation” in partnership with the the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR), the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the Indigenous Matters Committee of the Canadian Federation of Library Associations (CFLA), Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and Wapikoni Mobile.
