Kiskisiwin | remembering

Kiskiskiwin

Kiskisiwin | remembering is a short documentary by Metis PhD candidate Jesse Thistle, Professor Martha Steigman, and Professor Anders Sandberg. It provides a poignant counternarrative to the erasure of Indigenous peoples through colonial historical narratives, particularly at Black Creek Pioneer Village, and especially in the context of Canada 150. Recommended viewing for educators and classrooms at all levels.
