Event description

Movie selection in honour of Set 30 – National Day for Truth and Reconciliation where we remember many First Nations, Metis, Inuit and other Indigenous groups and the need for Canada to reconcile with them for years of genocide with the residential school system and other cultural impacts.

“Where the Spirit Lives” tells the story of Komi, a courageous young Blackfoot girl. Taken from her home on the reserve, she is sent by the government to an English-speaking residential school and renamed Amelia. With the help of Kathleen, a compassionate schoolteacher, Amelia must find the courage within herself to live in what white society calls civilization, and what to her is a foreign as well as hostile environment. Shot on location in the scenic Canadian Rockies.  FREE virtual program
