Stories from Batchewanaung Anishinabek Fisheries

- A DOCUMENTARY -

Fishing has been an essential element of Batchewana First Nation’s sustenance, identity, and livelihood from time immemorial.

Lake Superior Our Helper follows Chief Dean Sayers through a series of conversations with community members to reveal the cultural, political, and ecological relationships surrounding their fisheries. Inviting us on a journey of Lake Superior, the film shares the messages of Elders, youth, fishers, community leaders, and their visions for the future of Batchewana’s fisheries. It also documents how fishing has changed over time, conflicts with the state around management and regulation, principles of Indigenous law, and the culture and ceremony that are deeply embedded within fishing practices.
