Lethbridge residents will have an opportunity Thursday to learn more about the Colten Boushie tragedy.
The National Film Board documentary “n”pawistam‰sowin (We Will Stand Up)” will be shown at the University of Lethbridge, Room SA 8002 in the Science Commons, at 6 p.m.
Boushie, a young Cree man in Saskatchewan, died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering a rural property with his friends. The jury’s subsequent acquittal of the landowner captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada’s legal system.
The no-charge presentation will be offered in partnership with the Iikaisskini Gathering Place, the U of L Library, the Indigenous Governance and Business Management program in the university’s Dhillon School of Business and co-host, the National Film Board of Canada.
