True crime, true colonial prejudice, true injustice

In 2016 Colten Boushie, a young Cree man from the Canadian prairies, was shot and killed on Gerald Stanley’s farm in Saskatchewan. His family are left in grief, unsurprised by the systematic negligence in criminal cases involving the country’s First Nations population, but ready to fight for justice. NIPAWISTAMASOWIN is a shocking reminder that colonial prejudices are still very much a part of Canadian society. Director Tasha Hubbard depicts the tragedy and the aftermath by looking back at centuries of First Nation history with the colonizers, revealing a legacy of structural violence.
