Description

On-the-spot reportage captures the struggles of the Mohawk people of Kahnawake against the Canadian army and governments of Canada and Quebec during the summer of 1990. Centred around events at Oka, the film demonstrates that the rebellion was not engineered by a conspiratorial elite, as some claimed, but was the expression of the Mohawk people, determined to stand their ground.
