THE ICE WALK
VIEWING REGION: CANADA & USA
The Ice Walk exposes the little told story of the treacherous journey across the ice from mainland Prince Edward Island, Canada to Lennox Island reserve where the Mi’kmaq people were forced to settle. In 2021, the Lennox Island first nation and ally settlers hosted a reconciliation event but as community Elders share their stories and traumatic memories they question whether The Ice Walk is just another performative reconciliation event or is the settler community really ready to commit to change.
