SYNOPSIS: EAGLE FEATHER: WHEN THEY TOOK THE CHILDREN
YEAR COMPLETED : OCT, 2015
COUNTRY COMPLETED: CANADA
PROJECT EAGLE FEATHER: STOP STEALING THE CHILDREN :
The theme of this project is the inter-generational unheard stories of three victims of the Residential
School System and their own healing journey. One is set in Saskatchewan and two are from B.C.. The
filmmaker herself was on a healing journey and the film is part of that journey for her as the three
main subjects become what she calls 'angels' for her as they help her heal by sharing their
experiences for the first time and using traditional healing practices. 'Angels' in aboriginal
prophecies are people that help you on your journey. An ancient story about how an eagle egg was
mixed in with chicken eggs mirrors the stories of the victims and delivers a message of hope.
