Terry Uyarak: "And I don't believe when they say "We have the most, efficient, cleanest mining in modern days" because I don't think there are any clean mines." Click more for transcription

 

- I heard they are making a road for this mining project. Did they start already? From where to where?

- In Mary River, near this big lake. That's where the story of Ataguttaaluk took place. The mine is somewhere there, maybe it is closer to the other side but people from Pond Inlet wanted them to go this way.

- What do you think of the mining project?

- For sure I disagree with them to be there because they are going to make roads all over eventually but if it is also giving jobs to people I don't mind. I disagree because they are going to take all our land eventually. This is the beginning for them. And I don't believe when they say "We have the most, efficient, cleanest mining in modern days because I don't think there are any clean mines.

Everybody voted no but they still mine. There was a little protest outside here before and nothing, nothing happens, we don't own the land apparently.

Why do they even ask people to go say something about the project if they don't let us have like a say, even though they give us a chance. They don't really care about our culture.

      Coureurs de nuit

      channel: Wapikoni

      No longer able to hunt their prey the way their ancestors did, the young Wemotaci have become night runners through the deserted village. And can they ever run! They run for fun or just to exhaust themselves—until the police go after them. A fresh and lively filmmaking feat.
