Erica Daniels, a former videographer intern with Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak, directed a film called, Trail of the Turtle.
Trail of the Turtle is a story that follows two Indigenous youth on their journey to heal from the effects of intergenerational trauma. With the guidance of international spiritual leader and founder of the Turtle Lodge, Dave Courchene Jr., they enter an ancient Rites of Passage Ceremony. By learning more about their culture and traditions, they hope to reconnect to their original identity as First Nations peoples of this land and to be inspired to become future leaders in their community.
