The Oka Crisis in Five Minutes

The so-called “Oka Crisis” is one of the most legendary battles between indigenous land defenders and settlers in the last century. This uprising against colonization set the tone for native resistance in Turtle Island to this day. We at like to big up the Mohawks of Kanehsata:ke whenever possible, and in honor of the 25th anniversary of this rupture, we bring you two videos from our vault.

The Oka Crisis in Five Minutes is an extract of an interview with indigenous militant Gord Hill, who breaks down just what happened there.

    Hey Stim,

    Is there a longer documentary you would advice on the so called “Oka Crisis”? It is a very inspiring show of force by the indigenous resistance against colonization and would be a nice to be spread around.

    All the best,

    Hey Stim,

    Is there a good documentary you would recommend on the Oka Crisis. We do screenings of social struggle around the globe in our autonomous centre and this would fit in very well. Its a little know piece of peoples power and the struggle for selfdetermination. Thanks for sharing.
