Canada’s Indian residential school legacy and the decimation of wild pacific salmon stem from a common story: a world where relationships are severed in the service of power, where people become detached from one another and the complex webs of interdependence. Among the Secwépemc in British Columbia, one such story is Phyllis Jack-Webstad, a residential school survivor whose experiences inspired the Orange Shirt Day movement. By observing the trauma experienced by Phyllis and her family, Returning Home holds a mirror to the trauma experienced by the natural world, too. For the Secwépemc, healing people and healing the natural world are one and the same.

Followed by a panel discussion hosted by Lenny Peppers.
Duration: 72 min
