Fort Good Hope

This short documentary film was shot during the Berger Inquiry, mostly at Fort Good Hope. It includes footage both of Justice Berger and of many speakers, including the Fort Good Hope chief and a K’asho Got’ine translator. It deals with the issues not just of development, but also of education, language, cultural skills, employment, and land skills.
