Notes
A study guide written by "Dixie Shilling and Adele Finney. We live about 30 kilometres from one another in south central Ontario -- Dixie, an Aboriginal woman, on Curve Lake Reserve and Adele, a non-Aboriginal woman, in Peterborough. The Anglican, Presbyterian, and United Churches contracted us to write a discussion guide for the DVD 'Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners'."
Includes bibliographical references, p. 15, 17-18.
"'Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners' (pronounced Nih-gahn-ee-BAHT-oh-wadt: Frunt-Ruhn-erz) is a memory play narrated by the main character, Thomas, an Aboriginal residential school survivor now in his 50s. He has been invited by the organizers of the 1999 Pan Am Games to finish a run with the Games' torch that abruptly ended 400 metres too early in 1967. The invitation revives memories and finally, after a painful confrontation, he realizes that finishing the run is the first step on the path of healing. This 46-minute DVD, a filmed, shortened version of the play, is based on true stories told to playwright Laura Robinson by the 1967 Pan Am Games torchrunners. 'Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners' premiered on APTN in November 2007 and screened at the 2007 Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival". -- Intro., p. 3.
Contents: Introduction / [Dixie Shilling and Adele Finney] -- Introduction -- Facilitating a Discussion -- Stones -- A Response from Turtle Island First Nation, 2008 -- Remembering the Children Prayer -- Ecumenical Steps Taken Toward Restoring Right Relationship -- Resources for Further Learning about Indian Residential Schools -- Suggestions for Further Action -- Additional Information for Anglican Church of Canada Audiences.
