Video short film "Mi'kmaq Family , Migmaoei Otjiosog " by Catherine Anne Martin (32 min)
This documentary is not longer available online to view, except through rental. You can read the description on the NFB website. This short documentary takes you on a reflective journey into the extended family of Nova Scotia’s Mi'kmaq community. Revisiting her own roots, Mi'kmaq filmmaker and mother Catherine Anne Martin explores how the community is recovering its First Nations values, particularly through the teachings of Elders and a collective approach to children-rearing.  "Mi'kmaq Family" is an inspiring resource for both First Nations and non-Native audiences looking for ways to strengthen their own families and traditions.
