Third, we hear from acclaimed NFB filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin, the director of Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance. These audio clips were recorded in June, 2010 at her presentation at the Revisioning the Americas through Indigenous Cinema conference, which was organized by the GIRA.

Finally, we turn to Kahnawake and the Whiskey Point incident. In 1990, residents of a nearby reserve decided to leave, fearing reprisals by neighbouring communities. While leaving, thousands of residents from Chateaguay and surrounding areas attacked cars carrying Mohawk families fleeing the reservation.
