Historic Visit Of Indigenous People Caught On Film

Friday, February 25, 2005 at 13:21



The Gabriel Dumont Institute in Prince Albert has extended an open invitation to witness the launch of the “From the Four Directions” video.


Filmed in Prince Albert and northern communities, the film follows 13 specially invited Aboriginal vistors from seven different countries.


The visitors were taken to meet and interact with the local communities and schools to gain a glimpse into the lifestyle, culture and traditions of Saskatchewan’s First Nations and Metis people.


The visitors, in some cases, came directly from tropical islands and were taken to the cold North to see the traplines.


A few went ice fishing, snowmobiling, and even beaver trapping.


A public launch of the “From the Four Directions” video will take place tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Prince Albert Public Library.


The hospitality of the host communities will be recognized at that time.
