SHIELD Indigenous Youth Video Project – December to January, 2019 to 2020

The Indigenous Youth Video Project consists of 6 short films highlighting Indigenous Youth Storytellers from central Labrador, captured by Videographer/Editor John Gaudi. The Storytellers include Raine Hart, Mckenzie Dyson, Philip Snow, Rebecca Blake, Jackson Obed & Samantha Newman. SHIELD Coordinator Denise Cole & Community Service Coordinator Jenni-Rose Campbell were Project Leads through the Labrador Friendship Centre in Goose Bay. Youth were presented with a theme to explore through video and storytelling of “What being Indigenous mean to me”. A very exciting component of this project is that the films are online through our LFC SHIELD Project YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCyIHnev03klqNJfIx5N5cEOfAbO5A3bv & NCCIE’s website www.nccie.ca where they will be promoted as educational resources for schools & other groups to bring young Indigenous knowledge holders into classrooms and learning spaces. This project was made possible with financial support from the National Centre for Collaboration on Indigenous Education (NCCIE), sponsored by the Labrador Friendship Centre. Special thanks to the youth, their families, John Gaudi, Dr. Sylvia Moore & all who helped make this project a reality.
