Statement: This long-term photo-documentary project explores the unique challenges faced by diabetics living in the Cree community of Moose Factory, Ontario, an island where historical events and social determinants have led to unusually high rates of the disease among the Moose Cree —three to five times higher than the national average. Facing the possibility of such complications as kidney disease, nerve damage, blindness and heart disease, diabetic residents struggle with the difficulty of lifelong treatment in a remote territory.
Produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council and Ryerson University Magazine.
