When journalist Tanya Talaga first took a drive with then Nishnawbe Aski-Nation Grand Chief Stan Beardy to the shore of the Kaministiquia River, 10 years ago, she knew exactly where she was. She was directly across from Animikii Wajiw, thunder mountain on Fort William First Nation, her grandmother’s community. And this is where Jordan Wabasse, 15, was believed to be last seen. It is also where his body was found in spring, 2011.
