    A dystopian future tale rooted in Canada’s colonial and genocidal past. Danis Goulet uses genre to frame and explore the history of both residential schools and Indigenous resistance.

And cool to see a Maori character - Goulet’s homage to global Indigenous solidarity and support networks. 

    Plus, I cheered to see a cameo from Danis’ dad & first ever Indigenous SK cabinet minister, Keith Goulet!
