About Gespe’gewa’gi: The Last Land

Set against the beautiful backdrop of Canada’s Gaspe Peninsula region in Quebec, this documentary series looks at a Mi’gmaq commercial fishery and its connection to the people, their traditions and their homeland. Throughout the 13 half-hour episodes we get an inside perspective on how a First Nations commercial fishing industry – one that was born out of conflict and defiance – grew to be a key economic and cultural support for the community, helping to preserve Mi’gmaq language and traditions that were almost lost.
