About the Event

This film is about a decision made 500 years ago which continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide.  Pope Alexander VI ruled that the lands being discovered by European explorers at the time were "empty" land and its millions of Indigenous inhabitants were "non-human".  This ruling is referred to many times in relation to the 94 Calls to Action released by Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.  The film provides education and insight into the racist foundations of many of our laws that are still in existence to this day.  The movie itself is one hour in duration which will be followed by a sharing circle (discussion) that could last up to an additional hour or longer.  Admission is free although you are encouraged to bring a non-parishable food item to donate to the Osgoode Food Bank.
