The Story: Colonization Road is a documentary movie that examines the effect that Ontario’s historic colonization road system had/have on the indigenous peoples.

Several towns and cities within the province still have some streets that go by the name Colonization Road and this film caused some of them to rethink the name.

What you’ll see: Anishanabee activist and comedian Ryan McMahon journeys across Ontario to learn about Colonization Roads – the manner through which they have stripped native persons of land and caused limited access to traditional provinces while making space for immigrating settlers, in what is now known, as Canada.

He discusses with immigrants in solidarity and asks essential questions on reconciliation and the meaning of decolonization.
