RECENT TWEETS


In Honour of our Aboriginal & Metis Veterans on Remembrance Day,  we would like to feature "Cree Code Talkers". A documentary that explores the role of Canadian Cree code talker Charles "Checker" Tomkins during WWII. Digging deep into the US archives it depicts the true story of Charles' involvement with the US Air Force and the developments of the code talkers communication system, using the Cree language as a vital secret weapon in combat. Director: Alexandra Lazarowich
