Join members of Gabriola’s local chapter of Amnesty International to mark the tenth anniversary of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
This feature documentary profiles Indigenous leaders in their quest for justice as they seek to establish dialogue with the Canadian government. By tracing the history of their ancestors since the signing of Treaty No. 9, these leaders aim to raise awareness about issues vital to First Nations in Canada: respect for and protection of their lands and natural resources, and the right to hunt and fish so their societies can prosper. A 2014 documentary by Alanis Obomsawin.
