"It begins to rain as we fly, falling in solid sheets, water from sky to earth -- a free system of exchange." Kazim Ali's earliest memories are of Jenpeg, a temporary town in the forests of northern Manitoba where his immigrant father worked on the construction of a hydroelectric dam. As a child, Ali had no idea that the dam was located on the lands of the unceded Indigenous Pimicikamak, the "people of rivers and lakes." Northern Light recounts Ali's memories of his childhood and his return to Pimicikamak as an adult.
