Our Nationhood

In Our Nationhood, Aboriginal filmmaker and artist Alanis Obomsawin chronicles the determination and tenacity of the Listuguj Mi'gmaq people to use and manage the natural resources of their traditional lands. Our Nationhood provides a contemporary perspective on the Mi'gmaq people's ongoing struggle and ultimate success, culminating in the community receiving an award for Best Managed River from the same government that had denied their traditional rights

“Excellent film about the Mi'gmaq people who stood up for their rights. All my best to them. The 2nd part of the film they would like to log their trees but instead of clear cutting they would like to log the trees selectively. Yes!!!!”
