A documentary will be shown followed by a Q&A with Daniel R Elliott, Stz'uminus First Nation water colour artist and descendant of residential school survivors.  Danel wants to take people on a healing journey.  But first, he's asking people to confront the history and impact of residential schools head on, and not look away.

Daniel, whose father is from Stz'uminus First Nation and mother is Scottish, has always felt like he was straddling two worlds.  In the 1990's, he went through a spiritually transcendent experience ina sweat lodge that allowed him to feel, for the first time, at home with who he is as an Indigenous person of mixed ancestry.

My art is about helping people forge a new relationship." said Daniel.  "I've tempered all this pain and sorrow with hope.  That was hard to do.  I want to explore how this healing can happen, how we can bridge Canadian educational structures with Indigenous knowledge, and how we can find a way to put that together in a good way."

Daniel will also be selling his book "Truth, Art, and Reconciliation: The Winds of Change Project" in the lobby.
