Did you know that many First Nations schools get less money than provincial schools? Shannen Koostachin, a young leader from Attawapiskat First Nation, knew this was wrong, and so does Spirit Bear.
Follow Spirit Bear as he travels from Carrier Sekani territory to the unceded lands of the Algonquin Peoples, learning about traditional knowledge, the history of the residential school system, and what First Nations schools are like today.
Spirit Bear and friends won’t stop until Shannen’s dream of “safe and comfy schools” comes true for every First Nations student!
Based on the book by the same name, Fishing for Knowledge, Catching Dreams is the second stop motion animation in the Spirit Bear series, co-produced by Spotted Fawn Productions and the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society.
