Gimme Some Truth: Our People Will Be Healed

Sun, Nov 5 / 7 pm
Directed by Alanis Obomsawin
2017, Canada, 97 min
Manitoba Premiere

In her latest documentary, Alanis Obomsawin invites her audience to meet the people of Norway House and to glimpse what action-driven decolonization actually looks like. Norway House Cree Nation sits more than 450 km north of Winnipeg. One of Manitoba’s largest First Nations communities, it is also among the most innovative. With a focus on self-determination and sustainability, Norway House is home to a remarkable education centre and a range of community-managed industries. But the legacy of colonial policies, the trauma of residential schools, and the pain of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls remain deeply felt.
