Nestled on a peninsula just 25 kilometres from Peterborough, Oshkigmong (Curve Lake First Nation) is a small reserve with a proud history. In this unique and vital documentary, Elders and knowledge holders share the early stories of the Michi Saagiig, the history of the controversial 1923 Williams treaty (which covers about 13 million acres of present-day Ontario), and the contemporary culture and challenges of this rich community.
