 National Addictions Awareness Week: November 21-27

 

Kímmapiiyipitssini puts humanity and compassion first in its engagement with the

substance-use crisis and drug-poisoning epidemic on the Kainai First Nation in southern Alberta. Filmmaker Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (see Nov 25 & 26) invites viewers to witness the collective work of her community as it faces radical transformation. Dr. Esther Tailfeathers, a family doctor, community harm-reduction advocate, and Elle-Máijá’s mother, stands strong. She embraces the Blackfoot teaching “Kímmapiiyipitssini means compassion.”
