Waniska – An awakening of Indigenous Knowledge

Screening Time

Saturday, 25 May 2019 at 12:00 PM – BMO Sports Lounge


In an extraordinary display of resilience, a group of Elders out on the land address the importance of Indigenous knowledge. These residential school Survivors shine a light on a future where this traditional knowledge system may be called upon to assist humanity.

Filmed in the fields and forests of First Nations lands across Saskatchewan, Waniska was envisioned and directed by the Elder’s Circle of the First Nations University of Canada with participation from students.

Waniska means ‘to awaken’ in Cree.
