Fundraiser gala Sept. 29 to screen film about Canadian residential schools, Bones of Crows

A Shuswap Indigenous organization is recognizing the third annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation by hosting a gala and film viewing.

Rise Up Indigenous Wellness works in the Shuswap area to work collaboratively with the region’s Indigenous population to support and train community members and offer programs and services.

Workshops and staff training take the path towards reconciliation, said Rise Up’s Launa Payne.

The Canadian film Bones of Crows will play at the Salmar Classic Theatre as part of a fundraising gala on Friday, Sept. 29. The film returns to Salmon Arm after playing once or twice before, guessed Payne, adding Rise Up remains excited to share the “multi-generational epic drama grounded in historical truth.”
