THE OKA LEGACY

DIR: SONIA BONSPILLE BOILEAU
MOHAWK OF KANESATAKE | CANADA
2015 | 43 MINS

In the summer of 1990, all eyes were on the small town of Oka, Quebec. Triggered by plans to expand a golf course on ancestral land, it was a standoff between the Mohawk people of Kanesatake, the police and eventually the army. The Oka Crisis, which lasted 78 days and drew worldwide attention, had a profound impact on Indigenous peoples in Canada. This film will show just how crucial the events of that summer were in the shaping of contemporary Canada, where every facet of society is now influenced by a strong Aboriginal presence.

We get up close and personal with Steven Paul Judd, the dynamic and bold 21st century renaissance man. One of the art world’s most energetic, accessible and celebrated figures, this self-taught artist’s love for pop culture and Native American art has given him a massive following. This insightful portrait shows how Judd indigenises the popular everyday to allow our young to see themselves in all aspects of life, while at the same time making his own dreams a reality through his passion and zest for life.

The Oka Legacy and Dig It If You Can screen together at Māoriland Film Festival.
