It's the final summer for the Rupert River as we know it. One of the last wild rivers in North America is about to be diverted for a major hydroelectric project. Ten Cree paddlers embark on a 6-week, 600-kilometre journey down the Rupert River, to witness it one last time. For a culture that has gone through a rapid and painful social change, and for whom living off the land is no longer a viable option, this is also a voyage of healing for the Cree, into their unique cultural legacy.
Our host, Ernest Webb (Cree), take us on a journey down the Rupert River for the last time, the summer before itÂs diverted for a hydroelectric. Once a prominent Cree destination, Ernest will uncover the riverÂs true story, its people, land, and wildlife forever capturing the change and impact the hydroelectric project will have on the CreeÂs cultural significance of Rupert River.
