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.

My blood boiled watching this movie. I longed to butcher the Canadian soldiers hassling the Mohawks at Oka. I was so ashamed of my country -- lying, deceiving, bullying, stealing, breaking every single promise they made.
I was blown away by the patience of the Mohawks. If I were there under those circumstances there is no way I could have restrained myself from attacking the soldiers. The soldiers were just so evil, petty and stupid. The tension is unbearable as the soldiers draw the noose tighter and tighter, when it looked as if their plan might be to to kill everyone even the children and then lie about it, in a reenactment of the old story.
The fearlessness of the Mohawk, especially the women, facing armed soldiers was impressive. They were outraged that they were being treated as if in Nazi Germany, and they were not afraid to upbraid the doltish soldiers for their part in it, nothing like the obedient Jews led the gas chambers.
I only wish average Americans were as vocal in protecting their civil rights that they have so meekly abandoned to the Patriot Act.
