Nuhoniyeh: Our Story
1992, 54:23 minutes, colour, English
The Sayisi Dene were moved from their traditional homelands and dumped on the outskirts of Churchill in 1956. For more than 15 years they suffered a living hell of poverty and despair. They had no way to make a living. Their culture and skills became irrelevant in the hostile environment of a Northern seaport and military town. They were effectively abandoned by the Federal Government that moved them.
In the early '70s, the survivors began a move back to their land. They have built the community of Tadoule Lake and revived awareness of their history. They are determined to make a future for their children beyond the terrible injustices of the past.
