General Event
Indigenous Film Series: A Place Between - The Story of an Adoption
Mar 14, 2018 4:00 PM-6:00 PM, Kinsella Auditorium, McCain Hall, Fredericton, NB, Canada
A Place Between - The Story of an Adoption is a dramatic story of the reconciliation between biological and adoptive families. But much more than that, it is the journey of a cross-cultural adoptee who struggles to find balance between his families' different ethnicities and traditions and to discover how and where he fits into each world.

Following the tragic death of their younger brother in 1980, Curtis Kaltenbaugh, 7, and his brother Ashok, 4, were removed from their birth mother's care in Manitoba and adopted into a white, middle-class family in Pennsylvania. This film follows Curtis' struggle with his biological family's turbulent history and observes what happens when his biological and adoptive families finally meet.

Discussion to be led by Wendy Matthews and Mandy Richard.

This event is part of a series of events to address how St. Thomas University can participate in meeting the demands articulated by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. It was organized by the Ad Hoc Senate Committee on the Indigenization of the Academy.
