Trailer for the documentary Bee Nation.

Ahtahkakoop First Nation is a world away from Toronto in so many ways, but for Grade 5 student Thomas Isbister it’s a journey he’s keen to make to represent his school and community. Through Saskatchewan’s first province-wide First Nations Spelling Bee, Thomas and many others have an opportunity to compete against the nation’s best. There’s one way to spell success, but many ways to define it. The tensions of the competitions are highly compelling cinema, but the heart of the film lies with the families and teachers. They've built an empowering support system, challenging policies of inequity and refusing to limit their children's options. As Chief Kahkewistahaw Community School principal Evan Taypotat says, “Never judge a person ‘til you’ve walked a mile in their moccasins.” Bee Nation highlights kids who have dedicated themselves to their education in an inspiring story that encourages us all to be our best selves.
