Wonderful Memories - Beautiful Series, 15 May 2006
Author: wn_ptrs from London, Canada

This series took place in our backyard. I distinctly remember Lois Maxwell as being a very respectful, distinguished, beautiful woman who brought a wonderful presence to the series. All of the cast and crew were very nice people. Today,First Nations people is the proper term to use when referring to 'Indian'; which is still the technical-governmental term. At the time of the shooting of this series, many of the First Nations people were from our little village, Birch Island (Whitefish River First Nation). I was in the series as a little girl in the 'Long, Tough Race. At a time in our struggle for better rights and literally, a 'long, tough race' for our own people, this series affected our little village in a positive way. We took great pride in being a part of 'Adventures in Rainbow Country'. Many good things were spun out of this series and still remain today ie. provincial tourism names this area Rainbow Country. Very often, older Canadians still remember the series. A search on the web should bring up the latest information on the series. I think it is a vital part of Canadian television history.
