The N’Swakomok Native Friendship Centre in Sudbury is hosting a film series about Indigenous life in urban settings.
Five short documentaries will be shown at the Jan. 21 event, called Urban, Indigenous, Proud. They were filmed at different friendship centres throughout the province.
Kelly-Lee Assinewe, with the local friendship centre, says the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres partnered with the National Film Board of Canada on the film projects.
She says each documentary was created to help highlight urban Indigenous culture.
“This is who we are, this is how we feel being an Indigenous person,” she said.
“Just because we live in an urban centre we’re not really different from anybody else. But we also are Indigenous. We have our culture still, we have our language, we have an identity.”
