Gespe'gewa'gi - The Last Land

A fun and exciting dive into the world of Indigenous commercial fisheries and their connection to the people, their traditions, and their homeland.

GESPE'GEWA'GI : The Last Land, season 2 is a 10-part, half-hour documentary series about fearless and fun-loving Mi’kmaq people on the East coast whose lives are inextricably connected to the water. Our characters take us out on the water chasing lobster, snow crab, shrimp, tuna, herring, eel, and even on a kelp-harvesting excursion. We become immersed in the excitement of their jobs and the volatile — sometimes dangerous — nature of the industry. At the same time, we learn about how Western science and Indigenous knowledge intersect when it comes to conservation and managing fisheries responsibly. We also get an inside perspective on how First Nations commercial fishing industries have grown to be a key economic and cultural support for their communities.
