Nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up

On August 9, 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from
a close-range gunshot wound after driving into Gerald Stanley’s rural
property with his friends.
The jury’s subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international
attention, raising questions about racism embedded within
Canada’s legal system and propelling Colten’s family to national
and international stages in their pursuit of justice.
Sensitively directed by Tasha Hubbard, Nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand
Up weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker’s own
adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a vision of
a future where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands
