An inspirational series that paved the way for future Native First Nations programs
11 February 2004 | by (Mono, Ontario - Canada) – See all my reviews

I really liked Spirit Bay because not only did it give viewers a realistic look at the lives of the Ojibway people on a northern Ontario reserve but it also was the very first Native program series that set the stage for all future Native TV programs not only on the CBC network but on all other networks as well. The series originally aired on TVO when it first came out and since then the re-runs have been shown on CBC, APTN, etc. Its too bad that the re-runs aren't on anymore since I would have taped all the episodes.

But........... anyways.................. these are my comments on this program.
