In February, March, and April a team from the Capital and First Unitarian congregations will facilitate a Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation Film Discussion Series based on five Indigenous lead films. The series is guided by material developed by the Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC). The aim is to help us reach a deeper understanding of the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada and our shared history and its impacts.

Registered participants will watch the following films online (a link will be provided) but there will also be an in-person viewing option for each film.

  • People of the Feather: Joel Heath
  • Reel Injun: Neil Diamond
  • We Were Children:  Tim Wolochatiuk
  • Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance: Alanis Obomsawin
  • KONELĪNE: our land beautiful: Nettie Wild
  • CBC 8th Fire: episodes 1-4

The CUC has provided reflection materials that will be distributed to participants, who will gather for a facilitated discussion of issues raised by each film.

Mark your calendars!

Two groups of 10 people each will meet to discuss the films with 5 meetings in total.

Intentional Gatherings are February 11 & 25; March 10; April 7 & 21

  • Tuesday afternoons 1-3pm (at First Unitarian), FULL
  • Tuesday evenings 7-9pm (in James Bay) 3 spaces left; facilitators: Lynn Beak & Karen Christie
