A collection of short films themed around the Indigenous Experience set in communities across Newfoundland and Labrador.
Qwitna’q: Mi’sel Joe, Chief of Miawpukek First Nation, has worked for decades to bring back the tradition of Birch Bark Canoe building to his community. With the help of his brother, Billy Joe, and Billy’s apprentice Derek Stride, these three are intent on not letting the tradition die out as it almost did before.
For Liz Pijogge the threat of pollution affecting the traditional food supply for her community of Nain Labrador is very real. Together with Max Liboiron, a Marine Biologist with CLEAR labs in St. John’s NL, they are working together to paint a picture with the data they collect to show just how clear the threat is.
Kenneth “Mutchie” Bennet has studied traditional Mi’kmaw medicine for many years, now he looks to pass that knowledge down to Bobby White to ensure the knowledge carries on for the next generation.
Sagamaw Misel Joe has been a long sitting chief of Miawpukek First Nation. For many years Misel has felt the need to speak up for the long believed extinct tribe of the Beothuk who had been eradicated from the Island of Newfoundland in the 1800’s. Through a new DNA study Misel hopes to provide a Western Science link to be able to speak on behalf of these ancient silent cousins to the Mi’kmaw, who they once shared this land with.
