Our Way Home is a documentary film focusing on the building of Clan Mothers Healing Village, a holistic Indigenous-led community in Canada. It is also much more broadly about how Indigenous women are taking back control of their lives, breaking the cycles that hold them back, and ultimately leading by example to create the change that is needed in society
Since 2015, Konofilms has been documenting the progress of the Clan Mothers Healing Village project. The film, currently in production, will continue to follow us until we have completed initial construction on the land.
We are proud to share two of the promotional videos that have been edited to date:
