Canada's Awakening North

| 32 min

This short documentary from 1951 offers an appraisal of the social and economic development of the Mackenzie District, Northwest Territories. Get a look at the topography, resources, development, and settlement of this most-northerly Canadian frontier. Rather than depicting it as “harsh, stubborn, and silent” land, the film presents it as being filled with varied activity and opportunity.
