created by Magit Poulette, students of We’koqom’a Mi’kmaw School, Rob Smith Lindsay Dobbin and Ann Verrall
Elder Magit Poulette shares a story with students at the We’koqom’a Mi’kmaw School in Waycobah Cape Breton about her experience at the Shubinacadie Residential School. When she arrived at age four her doll was taken away from her so she created dolls from her cleaning rags. As an adult Magit searched for a doll that reminded her of the doll that was stolen from her. Magit tells her story and teaches students how she made her rag dolls.
Local poets and musicians perform while stories are told by veterans that remember the forgotten soldiers of African and Mi’kmaq descent.
“Part of telling these stories is saying that it can change. Because it has,” Harwood-Jones says, referring to what she says is Canada’s unspoken past of cultural discrimination.
What Harwood-Jones refers to is the mistreatment of African Canadian soldiers during the World Wars.
For example, as Harwood-Jones points out, British and American Commanders banned soldiers of African descent from marching with white soldiers during the Paris Liberation of 1944.
Harwood-Jones says she feels that Canadian history has neglected to tell the story of African Nova Scotians, Mi’kmaq, and other ethnic peoples. To make up for this lack of history, Unsung Heroes tells stories about discrimination and cruelty so to educate today’s generations about the importance of tolerance in our community.
My cameraman had to leave, it was early evening and I was standing outside in North Preston waiting to get in the school. And for a moment I felt scared, I felt scared that my gear was going to get stolen. Once I went inside the school to do the story, everyone was super welcoming. I was blown away. It was absolutely nothing I thought it was, I didn’t get robbed. So I caught myself having these stereotypes and I decided I was going to do my major project on North Preston, the stigma of the community. It was no easy task. A white girl trying to do a documentary on the community. They all feared I was going to portray them negatively as the community has been portrayed in the past. It took a lot of work and effort convincing the community that this was their chance to show what the community is all about. At the same time I made sure they understood that I couldn’t portray it as the perfect place, because yes it has issues and problems – but I wanted to show the community as a whole for what it really is.
At the age of 5, Hannah Taylor spotted her first homeless person in the back alleys of Winnipeg. This experience not only troubled her, but it drove her to do nothing less than change the world. The Ladybug Foundation, the charity Hannah helped establish, has raised over a million dollars to date. With her huge heart and can-do attitude, she preaches a simple message of "Share a little of what you have and always care about others." As this short documentary proves, we all have a lot to learn from Hannah's story.

Because of the manner in which the stories were collected some 96 years ago, we know the very names of the storytellers and where they lived in Nova Scotia.
