Social Science Week: Continuing Education
February 3, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Film Screening: We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice
Organized by the First People’s Initiative and Cinema Politica
*Cont Ed. teachers are welcome and encouraged to bring their classes*
In this documentary, distinguished Abenaki filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin focuses her lens on the landmark discrimination case filed by the Assembly of First Nations and the Child and Family Caring Society of Canada against Indian Affairs and Northern Development Canada in 2007. Obomsawin exposes injustices to the community by showing how the child and welfare services provided to them are vastly inferior to the services available to other Canadian children, while giving voice to the childcare workers at the heart of the battle. The documentary follows the case through the system for nine years. https://www.nfb.ca/film/we_can_t_make_the_same_mistake_twice/
