|7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ||Film - In Jesus' Name: Shattering the Silence of St. Anne's Residential School|
Susan Enberg, creator of a documentary on a notoriously violent residential school in Northern Ontario, will talk about her film at a free public lecture in Brantford at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25 at Laurier Brantford.
The discussion will follow screening of the film "In Jesus' Name: Shattering the Silence of St. Anne's Residential School." The film is a poignant all-Indigenous English and Cree-English collaborative documentary film that breaks long-held silences imposed upon indigenous children who were interned at the school in Fort Albany First Nation, Ontario.
The free event will be at 7 p.m. in Room RCE 004 in the Research and Academic Centre, Laurier Brantford, 150 Dalhousie St.
The event is the second lecture in a series entitled "What is Reconciliation?" It is sponsored by the Friends and Neighbours Group, a grassroots committee of volunteers supporting the Woodland Cultural Centre's Save The Evidence Campaign.
The lectures are presented in association with Laurier Brantford.
The goal of the lecture series is to educate people and promote a community dialog about the former Mohawk Institute Residential School and reconciliation. The Mohawk Institute, on Mohawk Street in Brantford, operated as a residential school from 1828 until its closure in 1970.
The third lecture in the 2017/18 series will be on Nov. 22. Retired Justice James Kent, of the Ontario Superior Court, who presided over cases involving Six Nations land claims, will speak on "The Potential for Reconciliation of Land Claims, Treaty Obligations and Common Ground."
Save the Evidence is a capital campaign to raise awareness and support for the repair and renovation of the Mohawk Institute building. The campaign is in response to devastating roof leaks, which caused significant damage to the interior and exterior of the building. It is currently undergoing the first of three phases of renovation.
