This is the second in a series of documentaries on water featuring the perspective of North America’s First Nations people. With a focus on Oil and Water, the programs examine dangers posed by the insatiable energy sector—the dangers of increased oil tanker traffic for residents of traditional First Nations territories on Canada’s west coast and the effects the 2010 BP massive oil spill had on the fishing industry in Louisiana bayous and the Gulf of Mexico. The debate continues to this day in Canada with the Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline project.

Josephine Manadamin, an Anishnabe Elder from Thunder Bay walked around the Great Lakes in 2005 to bring attention to the environmental dangers facing water. In 2011, her symbolic journey continued, this time from the four corners of North America, joined by hundreds of volunteers, carrying four pails of water that would converge at the Great Lakes. Her journey is documented in five half-hour programs, Water Journey.
