EMMEDIA and Indigenous Resilience in Music (IRIM) is proud to present "Atsiniiksisstsii" as part of the AlterNATIVE Indigenous Film Series, which showcases the rich landscape of works produced by Indigenous artists. This edition, curated by Curtis Running Rabbit-Lefthand, features "Intertribal Series" a documentary by Trevor Solway and performances by Bebe BuckSkin, Wyatt C. Louis and DJ BLKFT.

"In Blackfoot culture and many other Indigenous cultures, sharing and remembering the origins of our stories are part of the ways in which we understand, maintain, and continue building relationships with one another. Today, our stories can be told through film, music and other multimedia practices but it is the history and origins of the stories we share that continue to sustain us in reclaiming, preserving, and revitalizing our cultures as Indigenous peoples in Canada. This edition of AlterNATIVE: Atsiniiksisstsii, translating to “stories,” is a film screening and music series curated by Blackfoot artist and musician Curtis Running Rabbit-Lefthand and presented by EMMEDIA Gallery and Production Society and Indigenous Resilience in Music (IRIM), will bring to Mohkintsís (Calgary, AB) a time to learn from our origin stories from Canada’s up and coming Indigenous musicians, filmmakers, and creatives that are paving the way for Indigenous people in film, music and the arts."
