Our lineup is comprised of a large collection of films about Indigenous Peoples from around the world, created by passionate storytellers who portray their communities through a new lens. Learn about Indigenous culture and traditions, significant events in Canadian history and more, and listen to Indigenous voices tell the stories only they can tell.
