Wi’kupaltimk – Feast of Forgiveness
Many Canadians go hungry. Tragically Indigenous Canadians are twice as likely as other Canadians to experience hunger in their lifetimes. Wi’kupaltimk – Feast of Forgiveness, looks at the experiences of Urban Indigenous people residing in Kjipuktuk (Halifax). Salina Kemp, a Masters student, mother and Mi’kmaw from the Millbrook First Nation, takes us on a journey through all aspects of food security both historically and in the present day. The film celebrates of the resilience of the Mi’kmaq, the rich resources which were available prior to colonization, the medicines and wild food that are still available and the sacredness of that food.
