THE WOLVERINE: THE FIGHT OF THE JAMES BAY CREE

Set in the beautiful region of Eeyou Istchee, the territory of the James Bay Cree in northern Quebec, The Wolverine recounts the ancient Cree legend about Wolverine, who stands up to the Giant Skunk. The Skunk is hunting and attempts to kill Wolverine’s family with his toxic spray.

This age-old battle becomes an allegory for the Cree Nation’s fight against uranium development in their territory.
