This documentary presents Adelard Blackman of the Buffalo River Dene Nation, Saskatchewan. The video's theme is Treaty No. 10, issued in 1906 by the English Crown and representatives of the Native-Canadians. This agreement allowed the native people the right to hunt, fish and trap on their inhabited land. Following the arrest of traditional hunters hunting close to a military base along with the clear cut logging and extraction of oil and gas by large corporations, the native people believe the Canadian Government is ignoring Treaty No. 10. At present, the Buffalo River Dene Nation is preparing a lawsuit against the Canadian Government that they will present to the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
