magazine package in the December issue of Canadian Geographic magazine. It's about something that would otherwise be out of sight and out of mind -- the fight for a decent elementary school in Attawapiskat, Ont., a remote Cree settlement on the western shore of James Bay.
Goyette's writing and Sharp's photos are complemented by a documentary short by Dreimanis — with music by Dreimanis and Eamon McGrath. A slide show of Sharp’s pictures is accompanied by audio he recorded on site.
