Come join us on Thursday, September 29th, in the Student Center, 2nd Floor MPRs, to watch and discuss the film Indian Horse (2017). Based on the Richard Wagameses novel, the story is about Saul Indian Horse, an Ojibway boy who was torn from his family and committed to a residential school. He makes a life for himself using Hockey as an escape that eventually allows him to play professionally, but the past is always present.
Join us to watch this film, and afterward, join a discussion about the real-world impacts ‘Indian Residential Schools’ still have on Indigenous Peoples today.
This is in partnership with DEI events around
September 30th is Orange Shirt Day.
The film is free for all students, and light snacks will be provided.
