A game of creation , From June 05 to 27
Sam lives with his mother in the Anishnabe Native community in the Abitibi region of Quebec. His girlfriend, Migona, a student who lives in the Huron-Wendat community just outside Québec City is a 10-hour-drive away. Winter comes, and the young Native man leaves home to visit his girlfriend. Along the way, he meets Tania, a young Russian woman, and decides to accompany her in her flight across a terrain devoid of navigable roads. This road movie was largely shot on location in the Anishnabe, Innu and Wendate communities of Quebec over the course of a 2,500-kilometre-long journey.

 

On the cover: L'homme suivra, 1999, by Jacques Néwashish
Acrylic on canvas (40 x 60)

A painter and graphic artist, Jacques Néwashish also manages a traditional life site in Coucoucahe in the Upper St-Maurice Valley. His work is filled with an intelligent attention to beings and the land. Through his art and his involvement with his people, this sensitive, committed creator remains a man who still has the freedom to breathe to the rhythm of the earth.


O, Mother Earth
O, Father Sky
Weave garments of great clarity for us
So that we may walk
Where the birds sing
Where the grass is green

Tewa Poem

 


A drum beats. An ancient voice takes up a chant. And the voice knows other voices will come; that the river of dreams that express themselves out loud will grow and that one spring day, a mighty torrent will thunder.
A moccasin is posed on the ground; a dance step is traced. And the walker knows that other paths will open, that other travellers will have felt the call and soon the guests sharing a feast from the same dish will arrive on the welcoming shore.
A child is born. Then soon, a new voice will take up the melody of the old chants. More steps will hammer the generous earth and the dream will grow.
Nations are reborn in the full light of day, on the strength of traditions and youth. Spring throws itself madly into the arms of summer.
Everyone in Montreal for the celebration!
