NFB Film

"Trick or Treaty"

Alanis Obomsawin’s documentary follows the journey of Indigenous leaders in their quest for justice as they seek to establish dialogue with the Canadian government. By tracing the history of their ancestors since the signing of Treaty No. 9, they want to raise awareness about issues of concern to their people. With Indigenous youth mobilizing in increasing numbers to put an end to inertia, Obomsawin gives those who refuse to surrender a chance to speak out.
