Science in the Cinema: Indian Horse
Science in the Cinema: Indian Horse On June 5, the O’Brien Institute for Public Health, along with the Institute’s Group for Research with Indigenous People (GRIP), will present Indian Horse. Following the film, a panel discussion will explore the topics of colonization, residential schools, and their intergenerational effects on health. About the film: In the late 1950’s Ontario, eight-year-old Saul Indian Horse is torn from his Ojibway family and committed to one of the notorious Catholic Residential Schools. In this oppressive environment, Saul is denied the freedom to speak his language or embrace his Indigenous heritage while he witnesses horrendous abuse at the hands of the very people entrusted with his care. Despite this, Saul finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places and favourite winter pastime — hockey. An adaptation of Ojibway writer Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel, Indian Horse sheds light on the dark history of Canada’s boarding schools or Indigenous Residential Schools and the indomitable spirit of aboriginal people. Panelists: – Lynden Crowshoe, MD, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Family Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary; – Terri-Lynn Fox, PhD Candidate, Director, Kainai Wellness Centre, Blood Tribe Department of Health; – Bruce McKay, Instructor, Aboriginal Upgrading School of […]
