Artist: Normee Ekomiak. The artist is an Inuk of the James Bay region whose birthplace was flooded by Hydro-Quebec's La Grande hydroelectric project.
New dams were planned for the the James & Hudson Bay regions to supply electricity to Quebec & the northeastern United States. If completed, these hydroelectric projects would devastate the Cree and Inuk native peoples as well as a vast region.
