Watch the film: '3rd World Canada'
The film "3rd World Canada" is an unfiltered introduction to the past and present state of Reconciliation in Canada through the story of one family in one remote fly-in reserve.
Since the 'Truth and Reconciliation Commission', reconciliation is Canada's goal to foster a respectful relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canadians. In order to do so, we must start with a truthful account of the history of injustices that have occurred (and continue to take place). Starting with 'truth' allows us to move to a place of hope and understanding.
The family that participated in the film, did so to raise awareness of the "third world" conditions in Canada. They wanted to open our eyes and hearts, in the hope that through education and awareness comes positive change for Indigenous Peoples and for us all.
Pre-viewing Disclaimer & Warning:
This film may be difficult to watch because it portrays the impact of suicide on a family of orphan siblings as well as systemic injustices that we are not used to seeing in our own country. It may bring up feelings for you or those around you.
