nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up               

Thursday, December 10 | 2:00pm-4:00pm

In 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering Gerald Stanley's rural property with friends. The jury's subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada's legal system and propelling Colten's family to national and international stages in their pursuit of justice. Directed by Tasha Hubbard, the film weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker's own adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a transofmrative vision of a futrue where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands.

This meeting will be held on Zoom. You can watch the film with the group at 2:00pm, or watch on your own and join us at 3:00pm for a great discussion!
