Film Screening: Susap - Keeper of Knowledge
Take a glimpse into the life of Robert Louie Sr. (Yaqan Nukiy Hereditary Chief and Culture Carrier) at the Film Screening of Susap - Keeper of Knowledge.
The actors/actresses in this film are from our own Ktunaxa community:
Felix Three Feathers (Yaqan Nukiy) - young Robert
Lisa Three Feathers (Yaqan Nukiy) - grandma
Janine Basil (Yaqan Nukiy) - Robert's mom Isobel
Jordan Louie (Yaqan Nukiy) - dancer in the film
Ki Louie - Robert in a canoe
Alfred Joseph (Akisqnuk) - Robert's grandfather
This is a great opportunity for staff and families to learn about the residential school experience as well as some of the racism experienced by our people in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and even today. The movie shares the spirit of the Yaqan Nuki (Ktunaxa) culture that has sustained Robert throughout his life.
