| 29 min

This short documentary by Alanis Obomsawin takes us to Poundmaker's Lodge, a treatment centre in St. Albert, Alberta, that welcomes Indigenous people troubled by addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Named after a 19th-century Plains Cree chief, the centre offers a space where people can come together for mutual support, partake in healing rituals like the sweat lodge, and rediscover their traditions. The film shows the despair of a people dispossessed of land, culture, language, and dignity, and their strength and courage in overcoming substance abuse.
