Celebrating Indigenous Stories // Hot Docs at Home
“All that we are is story. From the moment we are born to the time we continue on our spirit journey, we are involved in the creation of the story of our time here…we change the world, one story at a time…”— Richard Wagamese, Ojibwe from Wabeseemoong Independent Nations, Canada, Author of Indian Horse, Medicine Walk.
As National Indigenous History Month wraps up in June, Hot Docs is excited to keep the celebration of Indigenous stories going into the summer—and beyond. Presented in partnership with Traditional Indigenous Knowledge Consultant Fred Martin, this specially-curated program will explore the wonderful storytelling traditions of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples of Turtle Island—and offer powerful food for thought at a moment of national reckoning. In three uplifting films, and an illustrated digital lecture, we hope to offer space for reflection and inspiration, celebrating the life-changing, life-affirming stories that form the cultural bedrock of our land.
