One River, Many Relations
One essential voice is excluded from Canada’s largest and most controversial industrial development; the voice of Indigenous communities downstream from the Oil Sands. In close collaboration with local communities along the Athabasca and Slave Rivers our focus on changes in the health of wildlife, the environment, and local people have led us to develop the One River, Many Relations Documentary. Our hope is that our film can play a role in the sharing of information, concerns, and perspectives on development in the watershed, and also create connections between communities, citizens, researchers, industry, and government. In the process, hopefully all, including those of us that live up and down stream, can better realize how local people are being affected.
