The six day tour of communities in Treaty 5 that have been effected by hydro development came to an end in the Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation.

The issues here are similar to ones in Gillam, O-Pipon-Na-Piwin Cree Nation at South Indian Lake, Norway House and the Misipawistic Cree in Grand Rapids – life forever changed after hydro started it system of damming rivers in the 1960s.

In this final episode, Ramona Neckoway who is a member of the Wa Ni Ska Tan Alliance introduces APTN News to her community.
