The purpose of this video project is to connect and develop a stronger relationship between our Elders and youth through using our Mi'gmaq language and culture as a means of passing down Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing and being to the next generations. The project will be part of a 3-part video series that will explore Gesgapegiag's history, present and our future.
This will be accomplished by recording sessions in the community with Elders and youth. There will be an honorarium provided for all participants. Once the 3-part film series is completed there will be a screening in March 2019 (More details to come). We are looking for Mi'gmaq Elders who have the passion for passing down the Mi'gmaq language and culture to the next generations. We are looking for Mi'gmaq youth who have basic to strong skills in the Mi'gmaq language and culture, and who are willing to speaking in Mi'gmaq with our Elders. Deadline: January 22, 2019
