Thursday, June 11th at 4pm (Before the PanAm Torch Ceremony) At the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre
1900 3rd Ave E, Owen Sound, in the Sound Room, you are Invited to view the film the "FRONTRUNNERS: NIIGAANIBATOWAAD" This is a A FREE Event. ***"THIS IS NOT A FILM FOR CHILDREN"***
In 1967 ten First Nation boys, all good runners and students, ran 800 km with the Pan Am Games torch from St. Paul, Minnesota to Winnipeg only to be denied the right to carry the torch into the stadium. That "honour" was given to a white runner. In 1999 Winnipeg hosted the Pan Am Games again, realized what had happened, tracked down the original runners, apologized and 32-years later, the runners finished the journey they had begun.
FrontRunners: Niigaanibatowaad is the story of those runners from residential school. It is a story that revisits memories--horrible memories and wonderful ones. It is about the resilience of First Nation people and what it means to be a runner and a bearer of fire. Ultimately, this film is about truth, reconciliation and creating a future for First Nation youth.
