s-yéwyáw: Awaken


Arts & Entertainment

January 15 @ 5:00 pm

Ecko Aleck of the Nlaka’pamux Nation (Lytton, BC) Alfonso Salinas of the Shíshálh Nation (Sunshine Coast, BC) and Charlene SanJenko of Splatsin of the Secwépemc Nation (Shuswap, BC) are learning and documenting the traditional cultural teachings and legacies of their Elders, including the impacts of genocide resulting from Canada’s Indian Residential School (IRS) system. Calling the audience’s attention to the filmmaking process of narrative collaboration between an Indigenous and settler team, this character- driven documentary connects the transformative stories of three Indigenous multimedia changemakers and their four Elders. Infused by Indigenous ceremony, s-yéwyáw: Awaken walks alongside the process of intergenerational healing.
