Gespe’gewa’gi: The Last Land is a half-hour documentary series about the men and women of Mi’kmaki who work for Indigenous-run commercial fisheries. Following larger-than-life characters, we experience the fun and excitement of their lives on and off the water. We also get an inside perspective on how First Nations commercial fishing industries – that were born out of violence and defiance – grew to be a key economic and cultural support for the communities.

You can watch season 1 on APTN TV in English on Saturdays at 7:00pm ET, Sundays at 2:30am ET and at 12:30pm ET. You can also watch season 1 on APTN TV in Mi’kmaq on Tuesdays at 6:00am ET.

We are proud to announce that APTN has greenlit the third season of “Gespe’gewa’gi: The Last Land” for a 10-part, half-hour episode series. Season 3 is currently in development, and will be heading into production in Spring of 2023.
