Indigenous Film Showcase presents: Resistence to Residential Schools: Digital Stories

September 20, 2013
Aboriginal Learning Cultural Centre (ALCC), Bldg 77, Gathering Room
1pm to 4pm

The purpose of this research project [digital stories] was for Indigenous youth to identify, integrate, and celebrate strategies of resistance that enabled family and community members to survive in that residential school system. Through digital storytelling, sharing circles, and other arts-based and traditional native methodologies, young Indigenous researchers documented those small and large instances of resistance practiced by residential school inmates. They will also document resistance to residential schools that took place away from the school sites.
