8th Fire is a provocative journey through Aboriginal country showing you why we need to fix Canada's 500 year-old relationship with Indigenous peoples; a relationship mired in colonialism, conflict and denial.

This is a 2-part event happening Saturdays May 13 & May 20, with two episodes of 8th Fire being screened on each day.

Episode 1: Indigenous in the City

Meet the rich kaleidoscope of Aboriginal people who are fast joining the country's urban middle class and bringing their country with them.

Episode 2: It's Time!

Memorable people and stories from across the country illustrate why there's an economic, demographic, and moral imperative to fix Canada's troubled 500-year relationship with Aboriginals.

This is a free, drop in event at the Gabriola branch library. Sponsored by the Gabriola Historical & Museum Society.
