Some Natives of Churchill

Directed by Cynthia Scott
Canada, 1973 (documentary, 27 minutes, English)

Film Description:
"Churchill, Manitoba, on the western curve of Hudson Bay, boomed for a while after it became the railhead seaport for the shipment of prairie grain. It also changed the way of life of the Native Indian and Inuit population. 'Four levels of government,' says one, 'and the town's biggest industry the liquor store.' In this film, local inhabitants say what they think of the changes and why they decided to stay when others moved on."
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
