Film Description:
"On the Maria reserve in the Baie des Chaleurs region of Québec, Micmac Indian children make birds and dolls of brightly coloured paper, which they hang in trees. But they are reluctant to have visitors see them, claiming, 'People might laugh at us.' The film is without comment except for the background music."
