New documentary series on way of life of the First Nations of Canada called Gespe’Gewa’Gi: The Last Land

The series takes place in the small Mi’gmaq community of Listuguj, which is located in the Gaspe Peninsula region of Quebec near the border of New Brunswick. In particular, it focusses on the commercial fisherman of the reserve. It offers an intimate and light-hearted look at these fisherman, who spend a great deal of their days on the water, as they catch salmon, crab, lobster and shrimp in order to make a living in an industry that had a violent and defiant beginning, but has now evolved into not just a way of life, but also as a multi-million dollar venture that serves as a vital means of economic and cultural support for the people of Listuguj.
