Event Details

Gallery 44 and imagineNATIVE present Janine Windolph’s Stories Are In Our Bones (2019), a short film centred around Windolph taking her young sons fishing with their kokum (grandmother), a residential school survivour who retains deep knowledge of the land. For both women, passing on traditional practices to the boys is an act of resistance. Re-presented two years later for the 2021 imagineNATIVE Festival, Gallery 44 has invited Windolph and her sons Corwyn and Dawalri to reflect on their experiences of the film in two commissioned pieces of writing.

Aritist: Janine Windolph (Cree/Atikamekw)
