Listen to the Land visually documents ways members of the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach are negotiating contradictions of living with the Land and an economy tied to mining. Elders, language speakers and teachers draw viewers in. Methodological complexities of a white researcher working respectfully with Indigenous people frames the work.
