Long Road Home: 45:13 minutes
For the past two centuries people have been making their homes on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies. Where did they come from? How did they survive and what has become of their legacy? Long Road Home features a 200 kilometre, 12-day horseback expedition of Mountain Métis riders. They trekked through the Rockies, from Grande Cache to Jasper, Alberta on a 100-year commemorative journey, in remembrance of their ancestor’s eviction from Jasper National Park. Long Road Home is episode 1 of the 13-part one-hour Canadian Rockies Series, a collection of stories sharing the history, culture and traditions of Alberta’s eastern slopes.
