A visit to the Indians of Canada pavilion at Expo 67, Montreal. Inside there are Indian artifacts, but even more arresting are the printed placards that tell the story of the Indian in North America, written without rancor but recalling what contact with European settlers has cost the Indian in freedom of movement, in loss of land, and in loss of health in body and spirit.
"This documentary highlights the “Indians of Canada” pavilion (as it was called). What I found most fascinating is the poignant mention of the residential school experience; I never would have guessed that this tragic subject was discussed as far back as 1967. We discover that the pavilion was designed by Indigenous people themselves. This nostalgic look at one of the theme pavilions also features an amazing sequence in which we see the entire Expo 67 site." - A. OhayonAlbert Ohayon
