A special screening of a new documentary film about the Algonquins of Barriere Lake. Featuring special guest speakers Norman Matchewan and Elder Michel Thusky from the Barriere Lake community, and via Skype, filmmaker Martha Stiegman.
Honour Your Word (2013, 59min) is an intimate portrait of life behind the barricades for the Algonquins of Barriere Lake, an inspiring First Nation whose dignity and courage contrast sharply with the political injustice they face. The title refers to their campaign slogan demanding Canada and Quebec honour a precedent-setting conservation deal signed in 1991.
