SYNOPSIS:
Between 1960 and 1961 the Province of British Columbia, then led by the Premier W.A.C. Bennett, underwent a series of nationalizations in
order to create Provincial “Crown corporations”. This initiative included the creation of what is now known as BC Hydro.
In 1968, BC Hydro completed construction on the W.A.C Bennett Dam and began flooding the Rocky Mountain Trench in northern British
Columbia, Canada. The resulting flood greatly impacted the Tsay Keh Dene people who have inhabited this area since time immemorial.
DƏNE YI’INJETL is told from the perspective of the Tsay Keh Dene Nation and its membership about the events that took place before and
after the flood. Viewed by many critics as a Provincial vanity project, development of the dam was pushed forward and completed ahead of
schedule, with little thought given to the resulting impacts that the natural environment and Tsay Keh Dene people would soon face.
