While massive development projects steam ahead, Eeyou communities are facing major health, housing and sanitation problems. Unemployment is high. In the midst of this the Eeyou leadership is establishing new institutions (Health Board, School Board, and Cree Regional Authority) and developing programs that will lead to greater autonomy. This episode covers 25 years of struggle between the Eeyouch and the Federal and Provincial governments and their crown corporations. The Eeyouch win some battles and lose others as they hone their skills as strategists and negotiators.

Program is also available in French.
