"While much of Canadian history is fascinating, most citizens have heard only a one-sided account. For many Canadians, there was (and sometimes still is) a disconnect between the “facts” we’re taught in school and the stories we’re told at home or at gatherings. This is especially true for Indigenous Canadians who for many decades were legally prevented from telling their stories, because of various potlatch-type laws or the trauma inflicted by residential schools."


This is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
