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 how this is simply a result of resistance to 270 years of European racism pushing them around and leading up to this confrontation.

We have to think about the future generations...there's a long trail of broken promises.
Did You Know?
We are native people to this land. We're not trying to take your land or anyone else's property. You ask if there's an imminent assault here, yes there is. Within a few hundred feet from here, you'll find the armed forces. Yes, they're ready for an assault. We were here to protect our burial grounds and the pines from a 9 hole golf course. You must keep that in mind. Have you forgotten?
