Nations to Nations: Indigenous Voices at Library and Archives Canada is a free multimedia e-book featuring 28 essays and over 140 images. Indigenous staff at Library and Archives Canada wrote the essays to offer personal interpretations of collection items such as journals, maps, artwork, photographs, publications and audiovisual recordings. This e-book provides unique perspectives of First Nations, Inuit and the Métis Nation, and it shows the diversity of the histories, languages and cultures of Indigenous peoples.
The moderator, the CBC’s Falen Johnson, who is Mohawk and Tuscarora (Bear Clan) from Six Nations Grand River Territory, will explore First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation histories, identities and languages in conversation with these three authors of Nations to Nations: Indigenous Voices at Library and Archives Canada:

Film + Media Arts Festival imagineNATIVE imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, Toronto, ON/Canada October 19 – 24, 2021
The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is an international hub for the presentation and celebration of Indigenous media art. We are considered Canada’s premier Indigenous media arts event and are the largest festival of our kind in the world. Founded in 1998, in part as a response to lack of self-representation (with the vast majority of films about Indigenous peoples being made by non-Indigenous filmmakers), imagineNATIVE plays a crucial role in providing platforms for Indigenous artists to reclaim their voices and express their perspectives. We are excited to welcome you to enjoy 6 days of screenings, special events, networking opportunities, Industry activities, and so much more! Welcome to the Festival!
