Presented by the Decolonizing Lens, the National Film Board, and the Winnipeg Art Gallery.


The Lake Winnipeg Project is a four-part documentary series that calls attention to stories of ingenuity and resilience among the Anishinaabe, Cree, and Métis communities of Matheson Island, Poplar River First Nation, Fisher River Cree Nation, and Camp Morningstar, at a time when many external forces are imposing change.


The series highlights their responses to various challenges and factors such as a shifting climate, industrial encroachment, government policy, and the COVID-19 pandemic, among others.


Anishinaabe/Cree director Kevin Settee takes an “own-voices” approach to storytelling that gives Lake Winnipeg communities and peoples the opportunity to tell their own stories, in their own voices, and to speak to the challenges and successes experienced within their communities.
