The Cultural Renewal Package

Haut de la page

The Cultural Renewal Package documents three extraordinary journeys and pays tribute to the resilience and fortitude of Canada's Native and Inuit Peoples. Interviews with survivors and archival footage tell the stories of three communities that have endured the pain and despair of being forced to abandon their homes by government or church. Far from home, they suffered from hunger, sickness, alcoholism, and violence. Inspired by the healing power of tradition, these communities replaced despair with cultural renewal. Includes: Broken Promises: The High Arctic Relocation, The Washing of Tears and Place of the Boss: Utshimassits.
