  1. msmichel's rating of the film My Name Is Kahentiiosta

    Excellent short from Obomsawin that follows her masterpiece 'Kanehsatake 270 Years of Resistance' by giving the viewer a portrait of a young mother named Kahentiiosta who resisted those trying to force her from her land only to be detained and face more penalty for simply wanting only to use her aboriginal name. Strikes an emotional cord and shows a side of the conflict the media didn't originally broadcast.
