Our People Will Be Healed
Alanis Obomsawin’s 50th film reveals how a Cree community in Manitoba has been enriched through the power of education. The Helen Betty Osborne Ininiw Education Resource Centre in Norway House receives a level of funding that few other Indigenous institutions enjoy. Its teachers help students to develop their abilities and sense of pride. This documentary conveys a message of hope: in an appropriate school environment, one that incorporates their people’s history, language, and culture, Indigenous youth can realize their dreams. 1h 37m.
