Description

Abenaki filmmaker, Alanis Obomsawin, presents a perspective of the 1990 Oka crisis that was not available through the media. We are able to follow the events from behind Mohawk lines--the interactions among the Mohawk protesters, negotiations with the military and provincial police, as well as appreciate their spiritual beliefs and pride in their ancestry that governs their unyielding determination to protect their land. Background information is presented to place this crisis in historical context.
