Wide Awake and Free Indigenous Films Available through NFB

Hi all,
Many of us have been exploring First Nations issues and connecting them to our classrooms. The National Film Board have produced a number of powerful resources available for free in conjunction with the release and tour of "Wide Awake". I had the privilege to see “Wide Awake" at the Calgary International Film Festival this year. It was an intensely powerful and hopeful look at indigenous music and its influence on communities across Canada. If you would like to find a screening, or arrange a screening yourself you can do so at the link below.https://www.nfb.ca/wideawake/
