Spirit Bear and Children Make History

Directed by Amanda Strong
Produced by Dr. Cindy Blackstock, First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada
26.5 minutes | 2020 | colour | animation

Spirit Bear and Children Make History tells the true story of a landmark human rights case for First Nations children at the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal and how Spirit Bear and his friends stood with First Nations children to help make Jordan’s Principle a reality.

Highlighting how children and youth across Canada continue to stand with First Nations children by learning about the case, speaking from the heart and taking respectful action for change, the film offers opportunities for learners to see themselves as actors for social justice and meaningful reconciliation.

Spirit Bear and Children Make History is a stop-motion adaptation of the children’s book by the same name. Released in 2020, the film is a co-production of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society, and Spotted Fawn Productions, an Indigenous-led production company.
