Stories are in Our Bones (11 minutes)
In this short but complex short, filmmaker Janine Windolph illustrates how knowledge is passed from one generation to the next. With the cameras rolling, Windolph takes her young sons fishing with their kokum (grandmother), a residential school survivor who retains a deep knowledge and memory of the land. The act of reconnecting with their homeland is a cultural and familial healing journey for the boys and a powerful form of resistance for the women.
