Based on the acclaimed graphic novel anthology, This Place is a 10-part journey through one-hundred and fifty years of Indigenous resistance and resilience. Through dramatizations and interviews, along with your host and time-guide storyteller Rosanna Deerchild, the series reveals the heroes, battles, triumphs and traditions which live outside and beyond the national story we have been taught ... to learn, to share, and to heal the future of "this place" we call Canada.
This isn't your average coming-of-age story. It’s the summer of 1990 and apathetic Anishinaabe teen Washashk is on a road trip with his mom Raven. She wants to support the land defenders at Kanesatake. Washashk wants to go to the movies, but it's in The Pines that he'll find his place in the world.
