Storyline

On August 9, 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering Gerald Stanley's rural property with his friends. The jury's subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada's legal system and propelling Colten's family to national and international stages in their pursuit of justice. Sensitively directed by Tasha Hubbard, nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker's own adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a transformative vision of a future where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands.

Gut-wrenching reality of racism
5 November 2019 | by dj_bheadSee all my reviews

This documentary followed closely the real and dangerous nature that racism inflicts upon First Nations in Canada through the justice system. The film was personally moving and heart-wrenching as a First Nation myself, I could interrelate to story to my own family and friends. The mainstream media during the trial had painted Colton Boushie with negative stereotypes, the same paintbrush they seem to color all First Nations. 'We Will Stand Up' allowed Colton's spirit to live strong, and leave a legacy we could all get behind as Canadians. The criminal system failed Colton, thereby failing all First Nations in Canada. This is a story that needs to be seen by all, especially those live in the rural prairies of Canada, and those who personally sided with Mr. Stanley.
