Colonization Road Screening
Join the local First Nations, Inuit and Métis community for a screening of the highly acclaimed film Colonization Road with a panel discussion afterward. This documentary by Ryan McMahon references more than 1,600 kilometres of actual roads built by Europeans and Americans towards free plots of land in the mid-1800s. For the settlers, these roads led to a new life in what would become Canada. But for the Indigenous people who lived on the land, the construction of these roads marked the beginning of the dismantling of their land and their culture.
