Aboriginal Perspectives - NFB

Films giving perspective on Canada's native peoples

The Aboriginal Perspectives module contains 33 documentaries, a short fiction film, and 5 film clips. These productions do not represent the entirety of the films on Canada's native peoples in the NFB collection, which comprises more than 700 such works. We did want it, however, to be a representative sample of the whole.

The Aboriginal Perspectives material is organized by theme: The Arts, Cinema and Representation, Colonialism and Racism, Indigenous Knowledge, History and Origins, Sovereignty and Resistance, and Youth. These topics are very relevant to social studies curricula across the country.
