Picturing a people : George Johnston, Tlingit photographer by George Johnston( Visual )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of 16, George Johnston left the Yukon community of Teslin and trekked hundreds of miles overland to coastal Alaska in search of the history of his people. Johnston met with elders, learning as much as he could about the Tlingit religion and the songs and dances of his people. A few years later, Johnston did something else that was quite extraordinary: after ordering a camera from a mail-order catalogue, he taught himself to use it and to develop and print his own photographs. The images he recorded--of special moments and everyday occasions--became a beacon to the young and a testament to the golden times of the Tlingit people. Johnston's photos lovingly portray a sense of history and a zest for life. His work as a photographer in the period from 1920 to 1945 has long been recognized in the Indigenous community, predating a generation of Indigenous and Inuit photographers. Today, as his photographs gain international recognition, the National Film Board of Canada has released a documentary directed by Carol Geddes, a clan relative of Johnston's. Picturing a People: George Johnston, Tlingit Photographer is a unique portrait of a man who was himself a creator of portraits and a keeper of his culture. Johnston cared deeply about the traditions of the Tlingit people, and he recorded a critical period in the history of the Tlingit nation. As Geddes says, his legacy was "to help us dream the future as much as to remember the past."
Broken Promises - The High Arctic Relocation( Visual )

In the summer of 1953, the Canadian government relocated seven Inuit families from Northern Quebec to the High Arctic. They were promised an abundance of game and fish, with the assurance that if things didn't work out, they could return home after two years. Two years later, another 35 people joined them. There they suffered from hunger, extreme cold, sickness, alcoholism and poverty. It would be thirty years before any of them saw their ancestral lands again. Interviews with survivors are combined with archival footage and documents to tell the poignant story of a people whose lives were nearly destroyed by their own government's broken promises

Cherri sets off to talk to experts in the field and discovers that society is only just now starting to consider the idea that females might be sex offenders. There aren?t many experts and even the experts agree that there is a lot to learn about this type of sex offense. At first Cherri Low Horn had a hard time comprehending her own childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a woman. Who ever heard of such a thing? And she suffered from the same misconception as many of us, that sex abuse victims are doomed to become perpetrators themselves. That?s not true. With this documentary Cherri bypasses shame and denial to take us on her personal journey from myth and confusion to knowledge and a happy ending.
