On September 19, Reel Causes will host their #Indigeneity event, a program of shorts selected by Guest Indigenous Curator Rylan Friday. This event will feature stories that weave together older generations, myths, legends, colonial traumas, and how these stories build a platform for the next generation to tell their truths through visual based storytelling and reclaim their identity. Join us in celebrating Indigenous stories from across Canada and New Zealand.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with filmmakers and a reception.

The evening's films include:

  • OChiSkwaCho (Jules Koostachin) 
  • ʔEtsu (Trevor Mack)
  • Holy Angels (Jay Cardinal Villeneuve)
  • Iridescence (Maxime Beauchamp) 
  • Cedar Tree of Life (Odessa Shuquaya)
  • Nite Ride (Olivia Marie Golosky and Danielle Black/Sui-Taa-Kii)
  • My Friend Michael Jones (Samson Rambo and Ian Leaupepe)

More information about the event can be found on Reel Causes' website.


The cause

Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA) is the centre of Indigenous youth excellence, supporting youth on their journeys by amplifying and celebrating their voices.

With over 20 culturally responsive, holistic programs and services UNYA empowers Indigenous youth to explore their personal goals for education, work, culture, and life, in a fun, safe, and healthy environment.

Guided by a youth-led approach, these philosophies shape all of UNYA’s programs:

  • Two-Eyed Seeing
  • Culture as Therapy
  • Trauma-Informed Care
  • Harm Reduction
  • Person-Centred Care

Building towards realizing their vision of empowered Indigenous youth leading and inspiring all Nations, UNYA is currently developing the Native Youth Centre, a purpose-built facility that will transform the landscape of Vancouver’s urban Indigenous community. Standing at the corner of Commercial and Hastings, the Native Youth Centre will inspire joy, pride, and belonging – a place where Indigenous youth can access the resources, programs, and services that will help them reach their fullest potential.
