KWEKANAMAD Documentary

1/1

Music by Andrew Huggett. Kwekanamad is a NFB documentary and tells the story of Annie, her family, and their quest to fulfill their dream to create a glass teepee which would house a National Aboriginal Arts and Performance Centre. In the video, we see that strong family ties manage to keep them together, that traditional teachings provide a measure of healing, and that many Natives, both young and old, struggle to assert their sense of pride in their culture and a sense of dignity about their heritage.
