Rooster Rock - The Story of Serpent River

Bonnie Devine and Rebecca Garrett

2002, 32:00 minutes, English


In 1953 uranium was discovered in the Laurentian Shield, 30 miles north of the Serpent River First Nations Reserve, in the middle of Alec Meawasige's trapline and in the heart of a sacred mountain. Based upon drawings by Bonnie Devine and inspired by the experiences of her uncle, Art Meawasige, Rooster Rock tells the story of a northern Ontario community's introduction to the nuclear age.
