The Campus Library has obtained streaming licenses to First Contact, a television series that follows six average Canadians with strong opinions about Indigenous people on a month-long journey, where they learn about Indigenous culture, history and present-day communities.

This is a great tool to better understand Indigenous people and address unsympathetic attitudes expressed by many Canadians.

Each episode runs approximately 45 minutes.
