This documentary can inspire research, discussion, projects and entry points for further learning about First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in urban contexts. How do stories teach culture? What is the significance of oral traditions within First Nations, Inuit or Métis peoples context? What methods have been and can be used to share stories beyond the written form? Have advances in communication technology heightened the value of orality? In a culture that values orality, is a spoken promise as powerful as one that has been written? And who decides its value? How does all of society benefit when First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples are treated with respect and dignity? How can the collective nature of worldviews that value a holistic relationship with the land and people benefit all of Canadian society? What are the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action and have they been followed through with? How can we make the space to be better Canadians in terms of relationships with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples?
