Film Screening "The Pass System"

Postby Carolyn Ryder » Mon May 30, 2016 3:06 pm

Join us on Wednesday June 1 7:00 P.m at the Calgary Public Library, Central Library, Theatre for a free viewing of the film documentary "The Pass System."

From the Northwest Resistance of 1885 and for over 60 years, the Canadian Government denied many Indigenous peoples of the prairies the basic freedom to leave their reserves, all the while knowing there was no basis in law for the policy. This investigative documentary features Cree, Saulteaux, Dene, Ojibwe and Blackfoot Elders from Treaty areas 4, 6 & 7, and their stories of living under and resisting the system, revealing a little-known picture of life under segregation.

No registration required.
