The Terry James Video Library has many videos featuring First Nation’s People.  The newest arrival is “Aboriginality”.  In this animated short blending past history with contemporary performance, a teen boy sits in a dingy living room idly watching television. When he sees a dance and rap program that transports him to a strange prairie land, he is brought face-to-face with his Native American heritage in the form of the mystical Red Road and a Cree dancer of the First Nations.
