Alanis Obomsawin, producer of Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance, presents a profile of a young Kahnawake Mohawk woman who was arrested during the 1990 Oka crisis. This film follows her involvement in the standoff, her arrest, and her reassertion of her role in the aboriginal resistance movement to achieve self-determination.
