Canadian filmmaker and historian James Cullingham elucidates his experiences over the last three decades as it pertains to Indigenous-settler relations vis-à-vis the lens of documentary filmmaking and journalism. Accordingly, Cullingham foregrounds the political context as integral to making meaning out of the various works touched up in this article. Concurrently, Cullingham also emphasizes the subjectivity of his point of view as a white man and acknowledges how those in the Aboriginal community may see things differently. Thus, cultural sensitivity is imperative when engaging with Aboriginal work, especially if one is a member of a settler culture.
