The Filmmakers Series | Episode 6

Hi-Ho Mistahey!

Welcome to weldcast: the filmmakers series. This is a podcast presented by the weld art collective and hosted by R. Edwin Barnett.

In this episode of weldcast, we sit down with filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin. Over her 40 years of covering First Nations issues on film, Obomsawin has been the recipient of two Governor General’s Awards, been named an Officer of the Order of Canada, and won numerous international prizes for her documentary work. We’ll be discussing her new film Hi-Ho Mistahey! in which she follows a community seeking justice and fair treatment for the education of its children.

In 2008, Shannen Koostachin, a student from the Northern Ontario Cree village of Attawapiskat began a campaign for a new school to be built in her community. Through her impassioned speeches, Shannen invited thousands of young Canadians to write their MPs and demand the right to equal education for all Canadian children. When Shannen was tragically killed in a car accident in 2010, the members of her community took up her fight and made Shannen’s Dream a national movement.

We also take a look back at one of Obomsawin’s great masterworks, the documentary film Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance, which is currently available for streaming from the NFB.

Please take a moment out of your day and show your support by signing the petition for Shannen’s Dream.

Hi-Ho Mistahey! will be playing at TIFF Bell Lightbox until November 7th and then can be found at the RIDM festival in Montreal.
