OUR TOMORROWS, TODAY:

WAHBUNG 1971

A vision for self-determination.

In the early 1970s, the First Nations people of Manitoba came together to reject Pierre Trudeau’s controversial White Paper written in 1969. From this historic movement came an influential position paper known as Wahbung, Our Tomorrows. This short documentary explores the history of Wahbung, Our Tomorrows, and shows how it was a catalyst for First Nations peoples’ right to self-determination.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“It really has changed the way that I'm going to teach about the 1960s and 70s in my Cdn. history courses, and is a VERY welcome addition to the course content for my Indigenous women's history course.” Dr. Mary Jane McCallum, Associate Professor, University of Winnipeg
