Sitansisk

Sitansisk | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Sitansisk is an uplifting documentary film that uses “Christmas Lights” as an expression for the spiritual, cultural, social, political, and economic awakening of an aboriginal people in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

 

This powerful, documentary film explores the “Festival of Lights,” an event that takes place in the Wolastuk / Maliseet community of Sitansisk (St. Mary's First Nation). What started in the 1990’s with a few individuals putting up Christmas lights on their houses has become a large community-wide event that represents a spirit of generosity, hope and a brighter future for the Maliseet people and their culture."

A project by the St. Mary's First Nation near Fredericton is replacing racist and hate-filled graffiti with aboriginal art.

 

Local artists and young people are turning the overpass at the Two Nations Crossings into a mural.

 

It not only covers the defacement by spray-painting vandals, but is a matter of pride for the community, according to Allan Polchies Jr., St. Mary's community planner.
