As a preview about the theme of my next fuckin show, I bring you Alanis Obomsawin’s “Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance” the ground breaking doco about the Oka rebellion in the 90’s. In short the racist piece of shit mayor of Oka in so called Quebec, wanted to expand the local golf course by destroying a Mohawk burial ground. The Mohawks said “Fuck that” and the legendary battle broke out. Don’t fuck around and watch this shit.
From the YouTube page:
Obomsawin’s detailed portrayal of the Mohawk community places the Oka crisis within the larger context of Mohawk land rights dating back to 1535 when France claimed the site of present-day Montreal which had been the Mohawk village of Hochelaga. Her evocative dimension of the conflict, exploring the fierce conviction of the Mohawks and the communal spirit that enabled them to stand firm.
