‘Trick or Treaty?’ screening marks National Aboriginal Day

In Recognition of National Aboriginal Day the Duncan library is screening the film Trick or Treaty? on Tuesday, June 23 from 6-7:30 p.m. This 2014 feature documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin profiles Indigenous leaders in their quest for justice as they seek to establish dialogue with the Canadian government. By tracing the history of their ancestors since the signing of Treaty No. 9, these leaders aim to raise awareness about issues vital to First Nations in Canada: respect for and protection of their lands and their natural resources, and the right to hunt and fish so that their societies can prosper.

In recent years, an awareness-raising movement has been surfacing in First Nations communities. In this powerful documentary, those who refuse to surrender are given a chance to speak out.

The event is free.
