This film was brought to you by the Canadian Medical Association.
Exploring the health and well-being of Inuit, Métis and First Nations peoples across five stages of life: birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and elderhood. Featuring stories rich in visuals, poetry and music, the film uncovers instances of systemic racism, the impacts of colonialism and the ongoing trauma experienced by Indigenous peoples in the Canadian health care system.
The Unforgotten was filmed on the traditional territories of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis, all of whom adhere to treaties by which they agreed to share their lands with newcomers in what would become Canada.
Edmonton, Alberta – Treaty 6
Okotoks, Alberta – Treaty 7
Winnipeg, Manitoba – Treaty 1
Keeseekoowenin First Nation, Manitoba – Treaty 2
We encourage you to reflect on the history of the land you live on, what the treaty relationship is with the traditional keepers of the land, or if it’s unceded territory.
