At the 30th anniversary of the Oka Crisis, watch Alanis Obomsawin's documentary Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance.

This is a part of Canadian history that most Canadians know of, but few understand; and I'll bet barely any non-Canadians know of.

See also Obomsawin's doc Rocks at Whiskey Trench, about another standoff that happened when the neighbouring community of Kanahwake made a blockade in solidarity with them.

@nev made it halfway through before i got caught up with other things, but this is an amazing doc with a lot of stunning footage. absolutely infuriating what they did to these people. heartbreaking hearing "wizard" say i hope this is the decade things start to change. sounds too much like BLM protesters this year
