Slammin Iron: Rebuilding the World

Country Available: Canada, USA

The World Trade Center, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building were all built largely by generations of men from two tiny First Nations reservations, Akwesasne in Ontario and Kahnewake in Quebec. Every Sunday night at midnight, these men leave their families and drive seven hours to New York City to work all week hundreds of feet in the air, balancing on the beams that form the skeletons of America's skyscrapers. They built the World Trade Center, ran to the rescue when the towers collapsed and now will rebuild #7 of the World Trade Centre.
