In 1953 uranium was discovered in the Laurentian Shield, 30 miles north of the Serpent River First Nations Reserve, in the middle of Alec Meawasige’s trapline and in the heart of a sacred mountain. Based upon drawings by Bonnie Devine and inspired by the experiences of her uncle, Art Meawasige, Rooster Rock tells the story of a northern Ontario community’s introduction to the nuclear age.
