ANGRY INUK: DOCUMENTARY SCREENING

January 21st, 2019

Please join the University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (UWSA) for a screening of award-winning documentary, Angry Inuk. The event is FREE TO ATTEND and all are welcome. RSVP through Facebook here! 

Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

13 Fires Winnipeg Water

July 6th, 2016

13 FiresYou are invited to participate in an ongoing dialogue about water rights through 13 Fires Winnipeg.

13 Fires, and the “Reflects in Water” art action invite the public to share in a dialogue about water rights during this month’s Water Fire event. This collaborative event will take place on July 16th at the Stephen Juba Park (Waterfront Drive) from 2:00-5:00pm, and will focus on the lack of clean and accessible water in many First Nations communities across Canada, with a particular spotlight on Shoal Lake 40 First Nation.

During the afternoon, 13 Fires will present speakers from Shoal Lake and Winnipeg water activists, and will facilitate sharing circles about water, while “Reflects in Water” invites the public to participate in creating water stencils along Winnipeg’s Waterfront active transportation route using unpotable water acquired directly from Shoal Lake.
