Indigenous Pedagogies film screening of “Jingle Dress – First Dance”

Jingle Dress – First Dance chronicles Cree, Attawapiskat filmmaker, Jules Koostachin’s six-year quest to dance at a pow wow for the first time in a sacred healing Jingle Dress. Jules’ journey honours her mother who was held against her will as a child for ten years in the Canadian Native Residential School system and her grandmother who didn’t understand that the horrific, abusive system was a deliberate tool of assimilation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Indigenous Pedagogies Thematic Research Network.
