In 1967, Camera West, a CBC documentary series, produced Seraphine:
Her own story told by Seraphine Ned, which portrayed the story of BC’s
first Native public health nurse, and the artist’s mother. This project is based
on a production still from this film and is used to unpack a set of
personal and institutional histories, which testify both to specific and
general complexities of residential school history.
