Eight female storytellers, writers and poets perform live at the Atalkukan Tales and Legends Festival in Mashteuiatsh. Virginia Pesemapeo Bordeleau recounts the origins of her relationship with bears; her works shed light on the documentary. Joséphine Bacon and Natasha Kanape Fontaine offer their vision of the world while Marie-Andrée Gill recites poems with brute force. Sonia Robertson, Festival Director, Alice Germain, Adventure Guide, and Telesh Begin, Shaman, discover their territory, while Kathia Rock chants beautifully in Innu and in French.
