Hunting Firearms - Laws of the Land
For Indigenous people, the traditional right to hunt is an important part of family and community roles and identity. Today, Canadian law requires that anyone in possession of a non-restricted firearm needs to have a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL). Join BearPaw Media as they explore Firearms Licencing for Adults and Minors and how both Indigenous Natural Law and Canadian Law can walk side by side in the name of safety.View Video

Learning Disabilities in School (Alberta)
The discovery of a learning disability at school can feel overwhelming to parents and their child. A teacher may suspect a learning disability if the child consistently struggles with any of the following: learning, physical ability, behaviour, emotional control, or communication. In Alberta, the law gives parents the right to make decisions about their child’s education. This video will help guide parents through the assessment process, the development of an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) and how to work with the school’s recommendations for the child. Through this journey parents and school staff will learn how to build on the child’s strengths to achieve success in school.

Understanding Aboriginal Identity
This film examines the complex issue of self-identification for Indigenous people. Today, Indigenous identity remains inextricably linked with past government legislation and continued stereotyping of Indigenous people in the media and Canadian history. From a Métis farm in rural Alberta to the offices of Canada’s leading scholars, Understanding Aboriginal Identity explores the factors that shape us.
Wahkohtowin: Cree Natural Law
Wahkohtowin means “everything is related”. Cree Elders believe that individuals, communities, and societies following the teachings of wahkohtowin will be healthier. This discussion between four Elders offers insight into differences between Canadian Law and Cree Natural Law, and establishes why Natural Law is needed in today’s society.
Lateral violence – putdowns, backstabbing, and sabotage occurring within a discriminated-against group – is a serious yet little-discussed problem in Aboriginal society. Hosted by Tantoo Cardinal, this BearPaw bestseller explores the problem, and challenges viewers to help break the cycle that perpetuates it. Over 5000 copies of Lateral Violence have been distributed worldwide, from the far reaches of the Arctic Circle to the Australian outback.
