8th Fire Education Series

FNIHB Telehealth, in collaboration with Technical Services Advisory Group (TSAG) and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) is pleased to present a new Aboriginal learning series centred around the CBC documentary 8th Fire. This series will explore each of the episodes in the documentary, while sparking discussions on the topics each session brings forward.

This series has been created to bring discussions to the forefront of challenges and opportunities facing the Indigenous People of Canada. We hope to break down barriers, remove stereotypes, and help further education of the rich cultures of Aboriginals.

Each screening of the episodes from 8th Fire will have a subsequent discussion with Ms. Karen Pheasant facilitating.

"In the opening episode of the four-part series 8TH FIRE, host Wab Kinew, from the Ojibways of Onigaming First Nation in Northern Ontario, and now a Winnipeg-based TV journalist, invites us to come "meet the neighbours". It's about time, since many Canadians say they have never met an Aboriginal person. This vibrant kaleidoscopic hour, introduces a diverse cast of Indigenous characters living in the cities. They are united in a shared bond as Canada's First Peoples and in their determination to reassert their culture within a wider population of non-Indigenous Canadians."   -CBC.ca

"It's Time! challenges Canadians with this reality: if we don't improve our relationship with Aboriginal people, we will cripple our economy. Both the footage and the argument come in high definition and make the case that Canada is changing beneath our feet. In a dynamic 2-minute walk through of 500 years of history, 8TH FIRE host Wab Kinew explains how anciept Wampum belts hold a clue to the future. The Supreme Court of Canada now confirms the promises they hold as the truth. The First Nations of this country were not conquered. They signed treaties to share the land and this means Aboriginal people must be consulted and accommodated when anyone wants to dig, explore, or develop on their land."   -CBC.ca

"There's no getting around it. Land is the biggest sticking point in the relationship between Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the "settler" population. Who owns it, benefits from it, gets to say when, if and how it gets developed? These questions are all the more crucial because the lands dispute sit on a treasure-trove of resources, which the world is eager to buy from Canada. But don't despair. This episode of 8TH FIRE, full of breathtaking HD landscapes and compelling characters, explores the creative ways of working this out."   -CBC.ca

"At the close of the series, we meet young Aboriginals preparing to change the future, determined to light the 8th Fire and build a new relationship with Canada. A fascinating range of artists, activists and business people take us through ways to shed the colonial past, build new pathways in education and economic development. Thisis all in pusuit of a new relationship to replace 500 years of conflict and injustices. In a forest in Quebec, Huron Wendat Artist Teharihulen Michel Savard picks up a rifle and fires. His target: the 143 year-old Indian Act, colonial legisltation that to this day governs the lives of most First Nations people."   -CBC.ca
