Neskantaga First Nation: We Love Our Land
I’ve just started a new project working with the Neskantaga First Nation (pronounced Nish-kahn-tga). Formerly known as Lansdown House Indian Band, Neskanta FN is a remote Oji-Cree community in northern Ontario at the headwaters of the Attawapiskat River. The community is deeply worried about how their traditional way of life will be impacted by the nearby Ring of Fire mining projects.
Much more to come over the next few months, but for now here are a few photos from Neskantaga to introduce some of the people of the community.
