Event description

Description

Celebrate Aboriginal History Month at Markham Public Library!

Join us for a film screening & discussion connecting Indigenous and environmental themes.
Explore and connect to the land through short films provided and curated by the National Film Board of Canada, and a facilitated discussion afterwards.

"First Nations have had an intricate, respectful, spiritually and physically dependent, grateful, and protective tie to the land. The nature of this tie is not so much one of ownership but one of stewardship. They feel they have been bestowed with a responsibility for the land (and sea) and all of the creatures that inhabit the land with them. This sense of responsibility is greater than an emotional tie – it is intrinsically tied to the spirits of all aspects of the earth. Traditional knowledge, languages, cultural practices and oral traditions built up over the millennia are all connected to the land."
