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 3: Whose Land Is It Anyway?

An evocative look at the role that land plays in the conflicted relationship with Aboriginal peoples and the rest of Canada.

Episode 4: At the Crossroads

How the Aboriginal community's feisty and self-confident youth; the "Seventh Generation" who are taking new pride in their heritage and pointing the way forward to a new relationship.

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