Cree Elder documents erosion of land and culture

APTN InFocus:

Cree Elder Jackson Osborne began taking pictures of the land on the Pimicikimak Cree Nation thirty years ago.

He wanted to document changes brought on by fluctuating water levels caused by hydro development.

Now students at the University of Manitoba are taking his work a step further.

And then another story about why volunteers are searching the banks of Winnipeg’s Red River.
