UNREPENTANT: KEVIN ANNET AND CANADA’S GENOCIDE
This documentary reveals Canada’s darkest secret – the deliberate extermination of indigenous (Native American) peoples and the theft of their land under the guise of religion. This never before told history as seen through the eyes of this former minister (Kevin Annett) who blew the whistle on his own church, after he learned of thousands of murders in its Indian Residential Schools. Aboriginal children in residential schools tortured, flogged to death, deliberately electrocuted. Thirthy-three mass graves found in Canada. DIR Kevin Annet, 110 mins, Canada

13 Moons Screenings is a regular evening of films and performances promoting the cultures of Indigenous people which takes place at SOAS every full moon.
Crucially set in the multicultural SOAS University in London, these evening screenings will together form a much-needed platform to celebrate and explore indigenous cultures.
The indigenous vision of life is profoundly linked to Nature. For them, as it was once for all people on this planet, the natural world is considered sacred. We believe that establishing bridges and finding parallels between indigenous cultures and modern societies is key to understanding ourselves and the world we wish for the future.
The laniary pull has an immense effect on the Earth and within all living creatures and plants during its orbit of approximately 29 days around the Earth. The moon’s cycle is considered the original month and even the word “month” originates from the word “moon”.
Native Spirit Foundation is a non-profit organisation, which promotes the knowledge and preservation of Indigenous Cultures and supports educational projects in indigenous communities. Native Spirit runs an annual Festival each October, which takes place in cities of UK and Spain.
