Another landmark in Alanis Obamsawin’s storied and inspirational career. Obomsawin’s 50th film in 50 years is an uplifting story of the Norway House Cree Nation and the incredible innovations they have instituted in their educational system. Situated in northern Manitoba, Norway House’s school has become a leading role model for Indigenous primary and secondary education in Canada, blending Cree and Western pedagogies into a system that puts the children’s well-being at its core. A long-time advocate for the rights of Indigenous children, Obomsawin crafts another stirring documentary that informs as it delights while reminding us of the power and beauty of young people.
