  • My Name Is Kahentiiosta

    1995. Canada. Written and directed by Alanis Obomsawin. Kahentiiosta, a young Kahnawake Mohawk woman proud of her centuries-old heritage, is arrested after the 1990 Kanehsatake/Oka crisis and detained because the prosecutor will not accept her native name. The film captures Kahentiiosta's willingness to die for what she considers sacred. 30 min.

  • Spudwrench: Kahnawake Man

    1997. Canada. Written and directed by Alanis Obomsawin. During the 1990 Kanehsatake/Oka crisis, Randy Horne, a steel worker from the Mohawk community of Kahnawake near Montreal, was known as Spudwrench, a defender of his people's culture and traditions. This documentary tells the little-known story of Horne and other Mohawks who travel North America doing dangerous, unprotected high-elevation steel work on bridges and some of the world's tallest buildings. 58 min.
