Filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin follows the journey of Indigenous leaders in their quest for justice as they seek to establish dialogue with the Canadian government. By tracing the history of their ancestors since the signing of Treaty No. 9, these leaders aim to raise awareness about the issues vital to First Nations in Canada. In this powerful documentary, those who refuse to surrender speak out.
The film is the first by an Aboriginal filmmaker to be selected to the Masters program at the Toronto International Film Festival, and is the 43rd film by Obomsawin for the National Film Board of Canada.
Co-presented with Kwanlin Dün Culture Centre.
