Standing Alone: Free Film Screening | April 9

This notice is from the archives of The Notice Board. Information contained in this notice was accurate at the time of publication but may no longer be so.

As a young man, Pete Standing Alone of the Kainai Nation was more at home in the white man's culture than his own. However, confronted with the realization that his children knew very little about their origins, he became determined to pass down to them the customs and traditions of his ancestors. This hour-long film is the powerful biographical study of a 25-year span in Pete's life, from his early days as an oil-rig roughneck, rodeo rider and cowboy to the present as an Indigenous man concerned with preserving his tribe's spiritual heritage in the face of an energy-oriented industrial age.

DAY/TIME: Friday, April 9 — 2 to 4 p.m.

WHERE: Online via Zoom


Co-hosts: Blackfoot Digital Library, Lethbridge Public Library, & University of Lethbridge Library
