    Description
    A film account of events preceding and during the summer of 1990 with particular reference to the so-called "Mohawk Crisis." The film focuses on the Mohawk territory of Kahnawake but also reflects on Canada at a particular time in its history.

    1992, 104 min 34 s

    Background (Taken from Wikipedia)
    The Oka Crisis (Mohawk Crisis) was a land dispute between the Mohawk nation and the town of Oka, Quebec, Canada which began on July 11, 1990. It lasted until September 26, 1990. At least one person died as a result. The dispute was the first of a number of well-publicized conflicts between First Nations and the Canadian government in the late 20th century which were associated with violence.

    The crisis developed from a local dispute between the town of Oka and the Mohawk community of Kanesatake. The town of Oka was developing plans to expand a golf course and residential development onto the land which had traditionally been used by the Mohawk. It included pineland and a burial ground, marked by standing tombstones of their ancestors. The Mohawk nation had filed a land claim for the sacred grove and burial ground near Kanesatake, but their claim had been rejected in 1986.
