About this title

Synopsis:

An indictment of the appalling treatment of native peoples in this country and a passionate call for justice.



The Innu are losing their homeland. On all sidesfrom Sept-Iles to Kuujjaaq in Quebec, from Sheshatshit to Davis Inlet in Labrador, and along the north shore of the St. Lawrence Riverdevelopments of all kinds are proceeding without respect for Innu land rights. In recent years the number of NATO jet bombers flying at low levels over Nitassinans rivers, lakes and valleys has increased. Now one of North Americas largest nickel mines will be established at Voiseys Bay. Solvent abuse and alcoholism are stretching the fabric of the community. Despite all of this, the Innu people remain determined to safeguard Nitassinan for future generations.


In this powerful book, award-winning journalist and filmmaker Marie Wadden provides a first-hand look at their ongoing struggle for justice.

About the Author:

Marie Wadden began her journalism career in 1977 at CBC television in Newfoundland. The following year she took a boat trip along the Labrador coast for a holiday and saw the Innu community of Davis Inlet at the height of its addiction crisis. She's never lost sight of the needs of Aboriginal people since that time. In 1991 her D&M book, Nitassinan: The Innu Struggle to Reclaim their Homeland, won the Edna Staebler award for creative non fiction.

Her radio and television work in Newfoundland and Quebec has also been recognized with Canadian and U.S. awards. In 2005, Wadden received the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy and published her research in a Toronto Star series entitled "Tragedy or Triumph: Canadian Public Policy and Aboriginal Addictions." She is CBC Radio's network producer in Newfoundland and lives in St. John's with her husband Chris Brown and their two children, Nicholas and Naomi.
