The Last Daughter – Movie Screening

Join us for this emotional and inspiring film event:  "After being raised by a white family, Brenda is taken away and returned to the First Nations family she didn’t know. Decades later, she feels disconnected from both halves of her life. But the traumas of her past do not lie quietly buried and Brenda is about to start a search that will uncover long buried secrets and lies, but also deeper connections to family and culture." The Last Daughter is a powerful and inspiring documentary about Brenda’s journey to unearth the truth in her past and reconcile the two sides of her family.
