Kenehsatake: 270 Years Of Resistance
This film documents the 1990 crisis when Native Americans of the Mohawk Nation blocked access to reserve land which was being appropriated against their will by the White community of Oka, Quebec, Canada. What this film shows is the initial incident and the resulting siege, from the Mohawks' point of view, as an illustration of how this is a result of resistance to 270 years of European racism and of being pushed around -- leading to this confrontation.
