Over the course of her incredible career with the National Film Board of Canada, Alanis Obomsawin has examined innumerable aspects of the complex and often painful past (and present) of this country’s indigenous peoples. That may be why the feelings of joy, pride and optimism in the director’s 50th film are so striking and moving. Obomsawin’s latest documentary examines the many ways in which Manitoba’s Norway House Cree Nation and its innovative Helen Betty Osborne Ininiw Education Resource Centre have fostered both a spirit of pride and a model for decolonization and self-determination, thereby providing a pathway to the future for young people still affected by the legacy of historical traumas.
