This year’s Indie Films Fernie schedule will come to an end on Monday, April 6 with the screening of Trick or Treaty?

The documentary explores the discrepancies surrounding the infamous 1905 Treaty 9 that allegedly forced First Nations communities to relinquish sovereignty over their traditional territories.

Trick or Treaty? is a powerful film that will reveal the deceptions and distortions surrounding the supposed ‘real’ agreement and our government’s deprivation of Canada’s First Peoples of their lands and rights.

The film is the latest documentary by Indigenous filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin who has released over 40 documentaries detailing issues that affect Aboriginal people in Canada.

Arts Station member pricing for this final film screening will be $9/adult and $8/youth while non-members tickets will be $10/adult and $9/youth.

The screening begins at 7 p.m. at the Vogue Theatre.
