Kingston , ON

In Canada's early years, an estimated 150,000 indigenous children were taken from their families and communities to attend residential schools, the affects of which are still felt today.

Wawahte is a documentary that tells the story of residential schools from the perspective of three of its survivors. They tell their very personal, and often tragic stories, so that all Canadians may find mutual healing and understanding.

Be among the first to view Wawahte at the Kingston Canadian Film Festival on February 27th. You can view the Wawahte trailer by clicking here.
