Description

Children to a mother who was the last fluent hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaker from the Musqueam First Nation, the Grant siblings were brought up in their Indigenous culture, language and spirituality, and yet, never considered “Indian” by the federal government of Canada.

ALL OUR FATHER’S RELATIONS tells the story of the Grant siblings who journey from Vancouver to China in an attempt to rediscover their father’s roots and better understand his fractured relationship with their Musqueam mother. Elders now, the Grants and their story reveals the shared struggles of migrants and Indigenous peoples today and in the past.

Examining complex notions of home and identity, as well as destructive colonial policies that continue to impact Indigenous peoples, ALL OUR FATHER’S RELATIONS is very relevant in today’s political climate in North America.
