Free public screening of “The Ice Walk” documentary at UPEI on February 8
The Mawi’omi Indigenous Student Centre at UPEI invites the general public to a free screening and panel discussion of the documentary, "The Ice Walk," with director Eliza Knockwood and other honoured guests on February 8 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The event will take place in the Alex H. MacKinnon Auditorium (Room 242), Don and Marion MacDougall Hall.
This documentary “exposes a hidden history of the exile of Prince Edward Island’s original inhabitants to a small island off its coast and explores the present-day desire of allies to rectify these injustices. The series holds space for Mi’kmaq Elders and other community members to tell their harrowing stories of crossing the ice to get basic provisions from the mainland.”
Thank you to our partnerships who helped make this event possible:
• Faculty of Indigenous Knowledge, Education, Research, and Applied Studies
• Atlantic Council for International Cooperation
• UPEI Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation
