Carving its way through the beautiful landscape of western Labrador and northeastern Quebec is the Tshiuetin rail line. The only railway in Canada owned by Indigenous people, the Tshiuetin is a lifeline for the people who call this land home and a source of pride for all who ride this historic line.

Caroline Monnet (Algonquin) is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist from Outaouais, Québec, currently living in Montreal. She works in film and video, painting, sculpture and installation, and is a founding member of the Indigenous digital arts collective ITWÉ.
