Now and Forever was a multiple day workshop where the youth of Rainy River First Nation learned about their proto-history and culture while at the same time were being trained on high end RED, Canon broadcast and GoPro cameras. They learned that there was and is no disconnect between their ancestor's culture and the new tools available to them; they were instructed on interview technique, story telling and how to use technology to embrace and spread their voice in the community and outside of it.
We present the story in chronological order with the major events that happened exactly as they transpired to all of us, different emotions and actions happened in real time as the past came to life and the pride of the community started shining through once more. The children were given GoPros to document their experience and we wove them in and out of the story line to show them learning from their own perspective.
