In February of 2006, members of the Iroquois Confederacy (the Haudenosaunee) set up a blockade near Caledonia, Ontario to stop a housing development on traditional land. Despite the media’s attendance at the time, minimal attention has ever been given to the Indigenous land protectors who were involved in the confrontation, and in particular to the crucial role played by the women of the Six Nations tribes, who stood their ground even as community chiefs asked their people to abandon the cause. Roque aims to remedy this exclusion, highlighting the role the clan mothers played in fortifying their people’s resolve, and her film is a stirring portrait of a group of women whose actions led to a cultural reawakening within their community. -KA
