This week, a few Henry Budd College community members were talking about getting together and watching an older video called “The Seventh Fire”. This video was produced by the Anglican Church in 1995. From Anglican.ca:
This 30-minute documentary explores a First Nations prophecy that the time of the Seventh Fire will be when the reborn First Nations will offer spiritual recovery to North Americans of European ancestry. Narrated by the late elder Vi Smith, The Seventh Fire chronicles the relationship of Indigenous Peoples and the European settlers, with many interviews from residential school survivors.
Others wanted to join in. One idea led to another and together we decided to use the 6 Wednesdays in Lent to view and discuss together some of the excellent resources that Indigenous Ministries (Anglican Church of Canada) has created. All are invited to join the video and discussion series. We will meet at Henry Budd College, keeping COVID restrictions in place but will also make a Zoom link available for others to join us.
Contact Kara at Henry Budd College (firstname.lastname@example.org, 204 623 3311, or Facebook) for more information or to get the Zoom link.
Looking forward to learning and growing with you!
