  • Turtle with swirls of black, red, yellow and white, with the OPL logo on its back

    Saturday Jun 08, 2024 at 1:00pm
    90 minutes

    In honour of National Indigenous History Month, Cumberland presents this deep dive into the brilliant mind of Thomas King, Indigenous intellectual, master storyteller, and author of the bestselling book The Inconvenient Indian, to shatter the misconception that history is anything more than stories we tell about the past. It is a crucial part of the conversation between Indigenous peoples and those of us who have settled, uninvited, on these lands.

    2020. 1 hour 28 min. In English with French subtitles.

    *************************************************************

    À l'honneur du Mois de l'histoire des autochtones, Cumberland vous présente L’Indien malcommode, produit à une époque de changements décisifs et de réexamens essentiels. Ce film met en évidence la brillante déconstruction du discours colonial d’Amérique du Nord à laquelle procède Thomas King, qui réécrit cette histoire grâce aux voix puissantes de ceux et celles qui perpétuent la tradition de la résistance autochtone.

    2020. 1h 28 minutes. En anglais avec sous-titres en français.
