    John Ware Reclaimed follows filmmaker Cheryl Foggo on her quest to re-examine the mythology surrounding John Ware, the Black cowboy who settled in Alberta, Canada, before the turn of the 20th century.  Foggo's research uncovers who this iconic figure might have been, and what his legacy means in terms of anti-Black racism, both past and present.  Please note: This film contains explicit language.  Viewer discretion is advised. 

    Ce film contient un langage explicite; la discrétion du spectateur est conseillée.   Dans ce film, Sur les traces de John Ware, Cheryl Foggo revisite l'histoire riche et complexe de John Ware, le cowboy et éleveur noir qui s'est établi en Alberta à la fin du 19e siècle. Cheyl Foggo s'efforce de pousser ses recherches au-delà des mythes racistes et des faussetés qui entourent John Ware.
