About Us

BearPaw Legal Education

BearPaw Legal Education produces and distributes culturally relevant legal education resources for Indigenous people in Alberta. We are a department of Native Counselling Services of Alberta.

BearPaw creates material for individuals and programs operated by a variety of organizations and institutions throughout Alberta.

BearPaw Legal Education recognizes that Indigenous people often feel alienated by legal and court procedures and benefit from support when interacting with the judicial system. Education is critical to progress in social healing and understanding of rights and obligations when it comes to the law.

BearPaw Media Productions

Since 1976, BearPaw Media Productions (BPM) films have impacted audiences across Alberta and around the world. Created by a team of Aboriginal researchers, writers, producers, directors and production crews, BearPaw Media Productions videos explore issues relevant to today’s Indigenous communities.

Our thought-provoking resources may help your community to:

  • Educate Indigenous people about their rights
  • Foster new ideas and discussion
  • Increase awareness about social and justice issues

Our videos are distributed throughout Alberta as well as across Canada and overseas and have received accolades at numerous film festivals, including Yorkton Film Festival, Dreamspeakers Film Festival, American Indian Film Festival, ImagineNative Film Festival, and Alberta Film and Television Awards.

All of our videos are designed for use in classrooms, workshops, and programs, and include public performance rights (PPR).
