Water. The reason all of us are here.

The Northern Bruce Truth and Reconciliation Group invites you to two films on the theme of water at the Parks Canada Visitor Centre in Tobermory on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 7 pm.

Watermark, by filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier and renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky, explores the uses, abuses, and attractions of water for agriculture, industry, science, sport, and spiritual needs  in locations spanning the globe. The cinematography is gorgeous.
A shorter film, Keepers of the Water, is an account of the Saugeen First Nations Annual Water Walk to Lake Huron to learn about our relationship with bodies of water and the people and wildlife that live in and around them. This exploration of water, and the traditional responsibility of women to care for water, is narrated by poet and storyteller Lenore Keeshig-Tobias.

The Northern Bruce Truth and Reconciliation Group was created in 2015 to learn how to contribute to building an environment where the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) Commission are acknowledged and the Calls to Action set out in the TRC Report are supported locally.
This summer, the Group is offering a free six part educational series known as Walk a New Path. The series has been held every second Tuesday evening since June; this final event of the series will be held August 22 at the Parks Canada Visitor Centre in Tobermory, on the Traditional Territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation.
The Walk a New Path series' film curator, Dr. Stephen Scharper, will introduce the films and Lenore Keeshig-Tobias will provide commentary.
Admission is free. The doors will open at 6:30 for this 7:00 pm event. Seating is limited, so please arrive early. Following the presentation, please stay for refreshments and conversation.
