Event description

Description

Join Beaches-East York M.P. Nathaniel Erskine-Smith for a free screening of "INDIAN HORSE" and a Q&A session with Tanya Talaga.

About Indian Horse:

"An adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel, this moving and important drama sheds light on the dark history of Canada’s Residential Schools and the indomitable spirit of Indigenous people."

About Tanya Talaga:

"Tanya Talaga is an award-winning investigative journalist for the Toronto Star and the author of Seven Fallen Feathers. The book, winner of the RBC Taylor Prize, and a finalist for the 2017 Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Nonfiction Prize, is about seven Indigenous high school students who died in Thunder Bay, Ont.

She has most recently completed a series of cross-country lectures as the 2018 Massey Lecturer, joining a long list of esteemed Lecturers from years past, that include Martin Luther King Jr., and Margaret Atwood. You can read the full Toronto Star article here.

Talaga is of Polish and Indigenous descent. Her great-grandmother, Liz Gauthier, was a residential school survivor. Her great-grandfather, Russell Bowen, was an Ojibwe trapper and labourer. Her grandmother is a member of Fort William First Nation. Her mother was raised in Raith and Graham, Ontario. She lives in Toronto with her two teenage children."
