The Documentary Organization of BC, New Pathways to Gold Society and The Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC are proud to present a preview screening of BC filmmaker Eva Wunderman’s documentary “Canyon War – the untold story”.
Canyon War sheds light on a shadowy chapter in Canadian history. Rich gold discoveries in the Fraser River ignited a violent war between First Nations and tens of thousands of invading gold miners during the summer of 1858. Descendants of both sides of the war voyage the scenic Fraser Canyon to forgotten battlefields telling stories of villages in flames and American militias killing and looting.
The screening will be preceded by performances by Philip Davis and Cheryl Bear and followed by a reception.
RSVP is requested by May 25th at firstname.lastname@example.org
