Alanis Obomsawin’s award winning documentary about the 1990 Oka Crisis, featuring in depth footage of the 78 day standoff involving Mohawks, Police & Military, as well as background to the standoff, including treaties, agreements, and the history of land appropriation.

The screening of this documentary follows last term’s screening of Sewatokwa-tshera’t: The Dish With One Spoon, by Dr Dawn Martin-Hill, regarding Six Nations land reclamation at Kanonhstaton/Caledonia.

In our discussion we will consider colonialism, land expropriation, blacklash, racism, and the role of the police and military in Indigenous land occupations, as well as the roles and reactions of government officials and non-Native neighbouring communities, paying attention to the continuity and consistency with recent, ongoing, and contemporary struggles for indigenous land and sovereignty.

It is my hope that by recognizing these connections we can better understand contemporary struggles and how to move forward, rooted in a critical understanding of colonial histories and ongoing injustices.

This film screening is brought to you by Hamiton FreeSkool’s Practical Solidarity, and the Hamilton Centre for Teaching Peace as part of Edu-Macation Mondays.

As Hamilton's downtown population increases, and young professionals seek walkable neighbourhoods, our city is exploring active transportation options like bike share, pedestrian parks, and smart and safe streets for everyone.

Building off the success of the white flag initiative, the Good Neighbour Campaign has been working to continue to provide Hamiltonians with the tools and skills needed to monitor air quality within their neighbourhoods. Recognizing that our next method needed to be simple, easy to interpret, precise, robust, and affordable, we decided to utilize the methodology of George Sorger, a McMaster professor who has studied the relationship of tree lichen to air quality (specifically S02 and N02, good indicators of airborne pollution).
