CBC Docs POV Cottagers & Indians

CBC Docs POV Cottagers & Indians

James Whetung is reclaiming his Indigenous right to cultivate wild rice on Ontario’s Pigeon Lake, but local homeowners are furious about large-scale changes in the waterways — so there’s going to be a dust-up. In this documentary, award-winning author and humourist Drew Hayden Taylor looks at the big issues behind this conflict: food sovereignty, property rights, restricted access to capital on reserves, racism, privilege, contract law and Indigenous poverty. These matters go far beyond Pigeon Lake, touching the lives of Indigenous people and non-Indigenous landowners across Canada.
