Our Reconciliation Series continues.  Saint Anne's Truth and Reconciliation Committee is hosting three movie nights, to watch and discuss the APTN docuseries, First Contact. We have watched one eipisode but you are welcome to join us for the remaining episodes November 22, and 29, starting at 7:00 in the Fr. Donlevy Hall at St. Anne’s Church.

What is First Contact? Many Canadians have not had the opportunity to get to know Indigenous Peoples or visit their communities. Through this three-part docuseries, which aired on Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) in Sept 2018, the creators aim to do just that.

First Contact takes six average Canadians, all with strong opinions about Indigenous Peoples, on a 28-day journey into Indigenous Canada. It is a journey that challenges perceptions and confronts opinions about being Indigenous Canadian.

With the viewing of First Contact, we hope to inspire greater awareness of the history and current lives of Indigenous Peoples across Canada, and encourage dialogue and engagement around Indigenous issues.
