We experienced some technical difficulties at the end of our discussion panel and access to "Livestream with Filmmakers" is unavailable at this time. The Eventive platform is currently experiencing challenges with its livestreaming service provider but they are aware of the issue and are working to rectify it.

The Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Decolonizing Lens are proud to present the screening of 4 films (68min total) from Turtle Island, Aotearoa, and Australia to accompany the Naadohbii: To Draw Water Symposium. Full subtitles for the films are unavailable at this time.

Following the screening, filmmakers Victoria Anderson-Gardner (Mni Wiconi: Mitakuyelo), Keelan Walker (The Pakohe Trails), Kath Akuhata-Brown (Washday), and Jason De Santolo (Warburdar Bununu: Water Shield), will discuss the themes within their works (45min). Moderated by Kaila Johnston. Real-time subtitles available.

Our world is profoundly linked to water in all forms for human and ecological survival. Water is sacred. Water is life.

The Water Symposium is part of the inaugural Winnipeg Indigenous Triennial, Naadohbii: To Draw Water, presented by BMO Financial Group. The symposium will take place virtually with Indigenous voices from Turtle Island, Aotearoa, and Australia discussing environmental, political and cultural traditions and interconnected relationships to water.

Nearly a year after meeting at the Oceti Sakowin camp during the NoDAPL resistance movement at Standing Rock, five Indigenous Water Protectors reunite in Toronto, Ontario. Brought together by a calling to protect the water, their experiences moved them to further elevate their voices in solidarity with the global Indigenous community.
