Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance
Director: Alanis Obomsawin
1993, 119 min

“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.”

Recommended donation of $5, all donations will go to Standing Rock
