“Stories have kept us alive, grounded and inspired. They carry the resistance and the strength of our ancestors. They hold our truths. And when we tell them on our own terms to an engaged audience, they carry a tremendous responsibility to transform.”

 ―Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg scholar, writer and artist

These are stories of resilience, transformation and solidarity. All speak to the need for change in formal education, and the centrality of Indigenous ways of learning and being in our lives and communities. Honour these voices. Listen and watch with heart.

To all the storytellers:

Trigger Warning: Some stories deal with emotional topics.

Making my film with these guys, it was such a decolonized space. I was able to take my time, work when it worked for me, and get so much support – emotional support and technical support. I was nervous about putting my story out there but I am super proud of my film.
