Awaḵ̕wa̱s: Gathering Place

 

Awaḵ̕wa̱s: Gathering Place is a documentary film that will investigate both the joy and the pain that comes from remembering. We want to examine who holds knowledge and how knowledge is transferred. It's a story about the experiences of six women who are brought together to build a split-cedar cabin, and how this process continues to shape their worlds and relationships. 

Awaḵ̕wa̱s: Gathering Place witnesses the processes of remembering, forgetting, knowledge-sharing, and truth-telling. It does so by examining the contemporary process of reconciliation between Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous (settler) society within the traditional territory of the Musgamagw Dzawada'enuxw Tribal Council (MDTC) in the Broughton Archipelago, BC.
