Synopsis: In the 1970s, Hydro-Quebec declared in a publicity campaign "We Are Hydro-Quebecois." The slogan symbolized the intimate ties that had emerged between hydroelectric development in Northern Quebec and French Canadian national aspirations. Caroline Desbiens focuses on the first phase of the James Bay hydroelectric project to explore how this culture of hydroelectricity marginalized Aboriginal territories through the manipulation of Northern Quebec's material landscape. She concludes that truly sustainable resource development will depend on all actors bringing an awareness of their cultural histories and visions of nature, North, and nation to the negotiating table.

Book Description: A thought-provoking exploration of the links between French Canadian nationalism and natural resource exploitation in Northern Quebec.
