DOWN THE MIGHTY RIVER - Episode Three: Displacement and Resilience

In recent history, the Cree people of James Bay have been displaced by hydro projects, forced into residential schools and hit by rapid change. Through it all, the Cree have maintained their culture by reconnecting with the land. But now that land is in jeopardy. Here in Old Nemaska, people are rebuilding a community displaced by a hydro project that never happened, only to discover they’re building on a shifting foundation, with the river about to change forever.
