If you like video (And who doesn’t?) we hope you’ll enjoy The Current Video feature. This video shows a presentation at the Revelstoke Museum & Archives by Sean Arthur Joyce, a Kootenay journalist, poet and historian whose book, Laying the Children’s Ghosts to Rest recounts the story of the 100,000 young children given away by their penniless families and sent to Canada as indentured servants and labourers between 1869 and 1948. This video is 72 minutes in length but is very interesting.
The Current is pleased to present short videos by and about local people and events. Most videos are produced by The Current, but we will accept other videographers’ clips in the two-to-ten-minute range taken of local people and events.
