National Film Debut on National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

 Join the national premiere of Understanding and Finding our Way – Decolonizing Canadian Education, a powerful film nine years in the making, and which exposes education inequities within Saskatchewan’s education system and beyond. 

Understanding and Finding our Way – Decolonizing Canadian Education was directed by award-winning filmmaker Alison Duke and was produced by Dr. Verna St. Denis, an internationally renowned scholar in anti-racist education. 

The film airs on National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. (CST) at a webinar event to be hosted by Dr. St. Denis and Shelly Tootoosis, starting with an introduction and ending with a screening and discussion.   

This is a must-see film for all teachers, educators and Truth and Reconciliation allies; however, please be advised that content may be upsetting for some viewers. As this is a virtual event, viewers are encouraged to consider connecting with an Elder or Knowledge Keeper, friend, colleague or additional supports as needed.  

The film was created in partnership with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation and the Universities of Saskatchewan and Waterloo, and through the support of Dr. Jennifer Simpson, Principal Investigator of the Social Science and Humanities Research Council grant: Building and Mobilizing Knowledge on Race and Colonialism in Canada.
