Media Resistance: Land and Water is Ashton Janvier’s second Wapikoni project that sheds light on the environmental injustices brought forth onto Dene land in Northern Saskatchewan by invasive uranium mining operations. Multigenerational voices reflect the crucial fight against environmental destruction.


Ashton is a young Denesuline from the community of La Loche. He attends University through a program at the Clearwater River Dene Nation School on the reserve. Ashton has directed two films with Wapikoni. He is passionate about Indigenous education, preservation of culture and language, as well as filming and acting. After he completes his teaching degree, he wants to teach in his community and educate his fellow Denesuline on indigenous studies.
