There is a peculiar relationship between Germany (and other European countries) and the First Nations people of North America. It all goes back to the writings of Karl May, a 19th-century author who created one of the most popular characters in German literature, Winnetou. While visiting Germany on numerous occasions to give lectures, Mr. Taylor was confronted by the legacy of these real and imaginary people. And as a First Nations man, it made an impression on him. On a trip last year, he took a film crew and documented this phenomenon. This is the result.
This event is co-sponsored by Balsillie School of International Affairs Research Cluster for Indigenous Peoples, Decolonization and the Globe.
The UWaterloo Book Store will be on hand selling copies of Mr. Hayden Taylor's books before and after the screening.
Our event is sold out!
