Pender Truth & Reconciliation Circle, and “8th Fire” Documentary Series
December 4, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
First we’ll discuss last month’s presentation by Coll Thrush of UBC – “Being Here Now – Colonial Histories, Indigenous Futures, and the Way of the Ethical Guest.” Then we’ll view the first “8th Fire” documentary series below. All are welcome, even if you didn’t hear the previous presentation.
“8th Fire – Indigenous in the City – More than half of Canada’s Aboriginal population now lives in cities. They sometimes call themselves “Concrete Indians”, and they are challenging stereotypes. In the opening episode of the four-part series “8th Fire”, host Wab Kinew, from the Ojibways of Onigaming First Nation in Northern Ontario, and now a Winnipeg-based TV journalist, invites us to come “meet the neighbours.” It’s about time, since many Canadians say they have never met an Aboriginal person.
