This documentary recreates an important historical event, a plot by the Langevin brothers that caused the Maliseets of Viger to lose their ancestral lands. At that time, the Maliseets of Viger lived a nomadic lifestyle and survived by fishing and hunting on their land. Following the loss of their land, the Maliseets of Viger dispersed and their population slowly decreased. It is only in 1989 that the Quebec National Assembly officially recognized the Maliseets of Viger as Quebec’s eleventh aboriginal nation. It is therefore through historical moments that we will trace the history and rebirth of this nation.
