Canadian short films

By | Americas | No Comments

Just saw 2 great short films recently on a flight home. Lumaajuuq (pronounced Loo-my-you) an Inuit cartoon about the futility of revenge and Shi-shi-etko the story of a First Nations child being forced into residential schooling by the Canadian government. Here is a trailer.

Broken arrow

Heard this story –

When an agreement was made between two Native American groups that were in conflict with one another they would break a single arrow in half to represent that peace had been agreed upon between the two parties. This would bring an end to the conflict. They were then reconciled.
