16 Spadina Road, Toronto, Ontario M5R 2S7
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to participate in a conversation with four of the original frontrunners – all survivors of the residential school system – as they discuss running, reconciliation and healing. The conversation will be preceded by a screening of the NFB film Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners

Nine of the ten young men chosen for the 1967 Pan Am Games torch run were from residential schools. Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners is about the segregation of the Aboriginal athletes and the despair and abuse suffered in the school system. It is a story of survival, hope, reconciliation and a dream for a new beginning that transcends hatred and racism.

Guests include: Frontrunners Patrick Bruyere, William Chippeway, William Merasty, and Charlie Nelson, and filmmaker & writer Laura Robinson, along with other special guests.
