Rocks at Whiskey Trench: "On August 28, 1990, a convoy of 75 cars left the Mohawk community of Kahnawake and filed across Montreal's Mercier Bridge - straight into a horrifying mob that pelted the vehicles with rocks. The targets of this violence were the Mohawk women, children and elders leaving Kahnawake in fear of an advance by the Candian army"--Container.
My Name is Kahentiiosta: "The second in Obomsawin's series on the Oka Crisis, My Name is Kahentiiosta is the portrayal of a courageous, deeply committed woman who was prepared to die to protect the land and trees sacred to the Mohawk people of Kanehsatake. Through her eyes, we witness the arrest and detention of those who withdrew to the treatment centre after the Candian army advanced during the 1990 conflict. Kahentiiosta herself is detained four days longer than the other women. Her crime? The prosecutor representing the Quebec government will not accept her aboriginal name"--Container.
