LISTEN to Legends from Ahtahkakoop (runs 53:58)

'Legends from Ahtahkakoop', or Sandy Lake, Saskatchewan, is the 11th in the 
series that began in Iqaluit, Nunavut in 2002. Since then the Legends 
Production team has travelled to remote First Nations communities to 
dramatize First Nations' and Inuit stories; fascinating stories of creation, 
spirituality, myth, and legend. This is in part to help showcase the rich 
cultural value of these ancient stories, before both tradition and language 
are lost to a dominant English culture.
