Our Home on Native Land - Cumberland House


CPAC’s Ed Watson visits Cumberland House Cree Nation (CHCN), a Cree reserve located north of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. CHCN was once the largest in-land trading post in Canada.

Ed speaks with residents about day-to-day life in their community, including concerns about education and job availability.

He also interviews community leaders about steps taken to improve quality of life on the reserve. Among those interviewed are Celia Dechambault (the principal of Nisto Awasisak Memorial School), Chief Walter Sewap (CHCN), Hazel Harris (a community health worker), and Andy McKay (the mayor of Cumberland Village).

This documentary series takes viewers inside five diverse Native communities across the country for an intimate look at what’s shaping, challenging, improving, and impeding life among Canada’s Native population.
