2016, 06:20 minutes, colour, English

A young Métis historian takes down Canadian pioneer mythology, with a very personal account of the impacts that version of history has played in his life. In kiskisiwin | remembering, a jingle dress dancer, an 1850s blacksmith and a troop of defiant urban Indians assert Toronto is Indigenous territory and challenge Canadians to re-write their nation’s history.
