White Ravens: A Legacy of Resistance

Friday, May 11
7:00pm – 9:00pm
Museum of Vancouver
In partnership with DOXA Documentary Film Festival, the Museum of Vancouver presents the screening of White Ravens: A Legacy of Resistance.

For millennia, the Haida People have lived on the remote islands of Haida Gwaii. In the wake of the forced assimilation brought about by the Indian Residential Schools, the Haida Nation continues to face great challenges in retaining their cultural and economic sovereignty. From the perspective of a young Haida poet (Towustasin Stocker), White Ravens bears witness to the transgenerational trauma of colonization as survivors, their children, and grandchildren struggle with the effects of substance abuse, suicide, and interfamily trauma. On the eve of a historic chieftanship potlatch, the film meditates on the Haida legacy of resistance and resurgence, presenting a portrait of a First Nation community in healing.
