20 Years Since Oka

Twenty years ago this July, the people of Kanehsatake and Kahnawake rose up in defense of their ancestral lands, facing off against government officials, the police, and the Canadian Army. Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) communities have been on the forefront of resistance to colonialism in Canada. The events at Kanehsatake and Kahnawake were a crucial landmark in the history of Indigenous resistance to colonialism, and in the assertion of Indigenous self-determination.

This event brings together community members from Kanehsatake, Kahnawake, Akwesasne, Tyendinaga and Six Nations. The panelists will reflect together about the impact of the events of 1990 as well as current struggles for justice in their communities.
