It is a small Anishinabe community located about 400 kilometres northwest of Montreal.

For 15 years they’ve lived off their ancestral lands.

The community is mostly ignored by all levels of government and so they live in a precarious state.

Now they’re ready to confront the forces that are threatening their way of life.

APTN National News reporter Danielle Rochette has this story.
