Sign up for the Indian Horse movie screening and Q&A session this Tuesday
This Tuesday, April 30, Women’s College Hospital (WCH), in collaboration with the department of Indigenous Medical Education at the University of Toronto, will be hosting a movie screening of Indian Horse, an adaptation of Ojibway writer Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel of the same name.
Indian Horse tells the story of Saul Indian Horse, an Ojibway boy who is sent to a residential school and finds momentary acceptance through ice hockey. The screening will be followed by an interactive discussion on the merits of the film in bringing us closer to learning the truth of residential schools and the impact it had on the lives of its students.
The screening is part of University of Toronto and Women’s College Hospital’s efforts to move forward towards reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in line with the calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions final report.
Date: Tuesday, April 30, 2019
Time: 6 to 9 p.m.
Location: Burton Hall Auditorium, 2nd floor, Women's College Hospital
