Stories from Land Back Camp
Co-Directors: Amy Smoke, Bangishimo & Erik O’Neill
Synopsis: On Indigenous peoples’ day, a large tepee was erected in a busy, urban park close to O:se Kenhionhata:tie (Willow River, presently called the Grand River) with the intention to assert an Indigenous presence just for the day. Over 100 days later, the tepee still remained standing, with the space around it transformed into a camp of queer, Two Spirit, trans, and/or non-binary youth learning and practicing their Indigenous cultural heritages and demanding Land Back.
