Grand Chief Sheila North was gifted a diary kept by the foster parents of 17-year-old MMIWG victim Cherisse Houle. They asked that North promise to tell Cherisse's story. 1200+ fulfills that promise.

1200+ is a film that tells the story of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIW OR MMIWG). The fact is that MMIW impacts not only a large population in Canada and the USA but also Indigenous peoples throughout the world. The film is a call to awareness and action for all.

The story of 1200+ is told by journalist Sheila North, who like so many of her sisters moved to a city from an isolated reservation at a young age to further her education. But unlike hundreds of other young Indigenous people she survived the perils of that journey to eventually become the first woman Grand Chief in Northern Manitoba, Canada.

Before becoming a chief she was gifted a diary written by foster parents of 17-year-old #MMIWG victim, Cherisse Houle, with the promise that something meaningful should come from its pages.

After becoming a Grand Chief, North fulfills that promise in 1200+ which chronicles the last year of Cherisse's life and is interwoven with actual survivor's testimonies, police interviews, court records and archival footage that weaves the story of #MMIWG.

1200+ is available as a feature-length film (90 minutes) or as a one-hour film.

 

Course Outline

 

1200+ is accompanied by a 30-hour course by Anita Olson Harper, PhD.

The course, 1200+: Missing, Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, is meant for the first years of a university (or college) student’s academic life. It is written from the standpoint of the Province of Manitoba, but can be adapted for any university or college in any province or territory.

This course is an interdisciplinary historically-based introduction to Indigenous women’s/girls’ treatment by government and society that has led to the current egregious dimensions of MMIWG in Canada. It will educate learners about how the past has led to the status quo of Indigenous women’s and girls’ vulnerable placement in regional and national spheres.
