Ekospi Namew - At the Time of the Sturgeon

Dennis Jackson

2004, 47:00 minutes, colour, English/Cree


The history of the oldest dam in Saskatchewan and its effect on the people around it, are documented through testimonials from the elders who reside in the northern community of Sandy Bay. These Cree elders and their ancestors have lived along the Churchill River system for hundreds of years, effectively managing their surrounding environment. In 1928, the Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company built the first Saskatchewan Hydro Electric Dam along the Churchill River. The ensuing pollution and environmental damage continue to effect the lives of the local Cree population today.
