Due to unforeseen circumstances, there has been a change in the program for tonight’s Laurier Free Film Series screening. Instead of Angry Inuk, the film presented this week will be Alanis Obomsawin’s Trick or Treaty. The screening will take place on Thursday March 2 at 7 pm BA102. Laurier graduate Jaydene Lavallie will still introduce the film.
This feature documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin 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 their natural resources, and the right to hunt and fish so that their societies can prosper.
