Kanehsatake 270 Years of Resistance
Alanis Obomsawin, 1993, 119 min 15 s
On a July day in 1990, a confrontation propelled Native issues in Kanehsatake and the village of Oka, Quebec, into the international spotlight. Director Alanis Obomsawin spent 78 nerve-wracking days and nights filming the armed stand-off between the Mohawks, the Quebec police and the Canadian army. This powerful documentary takes you right into the action of an age-old Aboriginal struggle. The result is a portrait of the people behind the barricades.

There is great power in even the smallest of us. Nurture the power within; nurture the power of peace.
