Nisga’a Dancing in Both Worlds, is a 44-minute video that documents the strong efforts of the Nisga'a people, in court and at negotiating tables, to reclaim their ancestral lands through the first modern treaty in British Columbia.
Filmmakers John Bassett and Rosalind Farber made numerous trips to Nisga'a territory beginning in 2003 to document Nisga'a history, their struggle, and life since the Nisga'a treaty was implemented in May 2000. Find out more about the Nisga'a Lisims Government: http://www.nisgaanation.ca
In 2010, The BC Treaty Commission and Surrey School District marked the ten-year anniversary of the Nisga’a treaty with the release of a comprehensive wiki site on the Nisga'a. Unfortunately, wikispace has since ended its services in 2018. The site worked hand-in-hand with lessons plans and the ministry-approved video. This resource is relevant to Social Studies 10, 11, First Nations 12, and Social Justice 12.
