First Nation: Thousands of years ago, the Algonquin First Nations people lived on the shores of the Ottawa River watershed. Images of their life can be found at Oiseau Rock. Scientists and social activists have been trying for years to have the Canadian government put signs up to educate the public about the historical significance of this sacred site. Unfortunately they have failed and the artwork is being destroyed. This short film takes a look at the Canadian government's treatment of our First Nations people.

Filmmaker Bio: An award-winning Métis filmmaker, Matt LeMay is an innovator in the field of educational documentary film. He has channelled his passion for addressing social issues that impact First Nations and Métis communities into documentaries that showcase the power of Indigenous storytelling and the importance of protecting the natural environment.
