  • “What we have here is more precious than gold or oil, the culture of the First Nation peoples recorded forever by James Beveridge and NFB. A sad history, perhaps, but nonetheless, very important. A legacy for generations to come, and all thanks to NFB I am ever your grateful subscriber. Long live Canada. Bro. John ” — Bro. John, 19 Sep 2013
