The tour schedule for the 2009 documentary about the life of the late Anglican priest and Saskatchewan Metis elder, the Rev. James Settee, has been extended after a successful run in communities throughout Saskatchewan.

Metis filmmaker Jeanne Corrigal is sharing her 48-minute film, Jim Settee: The Way Home, with the support of the Saskatchewan Arts Board’s Culture on the Go and the Metis Cultural Development Fund.

At 85, Settee became the oldest man ever to be ordained a priest in the Anglican Communion. But many also know him for having translated John Newton’s hymn “Amazing Grace” into Cree. Settee died in 2005 at the age of 94.
