At each tour stop the event we commenced with a traditional smudge ceremony and a performance from the K.I. Youth Drum Group: Waking Spirit Singers. The documentary 3rd World Canada was introduced by special guests including Ontario Regional Chief Stan Beardy and filmmaker Andrée Cazabon. Afterwards, K.I. community leaders and film participants hosted a discussion with the audience and recognized local aboriginal artists. Local Outreach Projects were highlighted throughout the event and online to connect the audience to current reconciliation initiatives. Through friendship – we can act as a catalyst for change in Canada.
