Mi’kmaq Elder Joe Michael, invited by Acadia University to lecture on Mi’kmaw (L’nuk) Traditional healing, chose instead to stage a reenactment. Participating students were moved and galvanized! This led to their involvement in the making of a ground-breaking film exploring mutual healing from 400 years of colonialism. Woven throughout the reenactments are interviews with participants: Mi’kmaq Elders, Indigenous and Settler university students, and their professor. By expressing their true feelings they end up finding common ground.
