We are excited to let you know that the library will be moving to a new website in the coming weeks – but our web address is staying the same! While it may look different, you can still find all of the same great resources in one convenient place.

When & Where
Date / Time:

Join us in the program room throughout June for screenings of films provided by The National Film Board of Canada in celebration of National Indigenous History Month.

First Nations films: 

Wednesday, June 8: 6-6:45pm

  • Stories Are in Our Bones (11 min)  In this layered short film, filmmaker Janine Windolph takes her young sons fishing with their kokum (grandmother), a residential school survivor who retains a deep knowledge and memory of the land. The act of reconnecting with their homeland is a cultural and familial healing journey for the boys, who are growing up in the city. It’s also a powerful form of resistance for the women.
  • Mary Two-Axe Earley: I Am Indian Again (34 min)  Using never-before-seen archival footage and audio recordings, Mohawk filmmaker Courtney Montour engages in a deeply personal conversation with the late Mohawk woman who challenged sexist and genocidal government policies that stripped First Nations women and children of their Indian status when they married non-Indian men.

Free.  Coffee and tea provided.
