This 7 minute short (video) is from a Wildlands League trip to Weenusk First Nation (Peawanuck) in Ontario, Canada. We were invited to Peawanuck to talk about mining pressures, to glimpse first hand of how Indigenous People use the land and to learn how country foods and healthy rivers are critical to Indigenous Peoples' health and culture. We also spent time on the Winisk River and Hudson Bay coast. We present for the first time footage of polar bears, beluga whales, ice floes and how Indigenous People use nets and the tides to fish for brook trout in the mudflats of the Hudson Bay shore. We hope this video shows viewers why it's important for Ontario and Canada to respect these magnificent ecosystems, its wildlife populations and the people who have relied on them for centuries.
Wildlands League thanks Parrhesia Productions for making this short film for us.
