This year we ordered 5 films from you for our Social Studies Department. I was quite excited to get the films because they include a First Nations perspective on the issue of land claims, etc. They are easy to view and understand for kids. As a department head and VP I know a good product if it passes the classroom test. - Jocelyn Regards - SD 44

The videos are fantastic. Thanks. My class enjoys them very much. We just watched Native Women in Politics the other day. Again ... awesome. Keep up the hard work. - Micah - Teacher - Port Hardy, BC
