"[Alanis Obomsawin's] films are often powerful indictments of the Canadian state's Aboriginal policies. As a series, they have become a significant record of the land claims battles and other social and political struggles of the past three and a half decades. The Obomsawin films participate in, and are acts of representation of, a dialogue within the Canadian state about the status and plight of Aboriginal peoples."
