Don and Marion McDougall Hall
Room 242

UPEI faculty, staff, and students, and the general public are invited to a free screening and panel discussion of "The Ice Walk" with director Eliza Knockwood and other honoured guests. This event will take place in the Hon. Alex H. MacKinnon Auditorium (Room 242), Don and Marion McDougall Hall, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

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.”
