Please note change of venue and time: We Were Children screening at 12 noon at the Phoenix Indian School Visitor Center. Address below:
For over 130 years, more than 100,000 of Canada’s First Nations children were legally required to attend government-funded schools run by various Christian faiths. These children endured brutality, physical hardship, mental degradation, and the complete erasure of their culture. These schools were established with the express purpose, “To kill the Indian in the child.” Told through their own voices, We Were Children is the shocking true story of two such children: Glen Anaquod and Lyna Hart.
This screening was made possible by the National Film Board of Canada.
