History of Manawan - Part Two

Haut de la page

Atikamekw elder Cézar Néwashish continues to recount the history of the community of Manawan that first began in The History of Manawan: Part One. As Christianity and European customs take deeper root in the community – abetted by residential schools and aggressive assimilationist government policies – seemingly irreversible changes to significant customs begin to unfold. Despite these struggles, the people carry on.

This short is part of the Manawan series directed by Alanis Obomsawin.

Remastered on DVD in 2009.

1972, 21 min 32 s
