"Hydroelectric development has sidelines Aboriginal peoples from the sustenance and beauty of the lands and waters given to them by the Creator. It is now time they re-assume their rightful place in caring for and restoring their homeland. Perhaps then, those lands and waters will bring much-needed healing to the people. Hydroelectric development on northern Manitoba rivers in the past three decades has re-engineered watersheds that were entrusted to Aboriginal peoples by the Creator. Such development, which generates 75% of the electricity produced in Manitoba, has impacted those Aboriginal peoples in ways that cut to the very heart of their existence". -- Executive Summary.
