This short documentary depicts the vast expanses of the great Northwest. It illustrates the old fur trade, new mining developments, the importance of church missions, the welfare of Indian and Inuit peoples and the role of air transportation in drawing this huge territory into the mainstream of Canadian life.

  • «What we have here is more precious than gold or oil, the culture of the First Nation peoples recorded forever by James Beveridge and NFB. A sad history, perhaps, but nonetheless, very important. A legacy for generations to come, and all thanks to NFB I am ever your grateful subscriber. Long live Canada. Bro. John » — Bro. John, 19 Sep 2013
