Paul Piché presents a documentary on many of the problems, still very current, facing native people. Filmed for the most part in Kanawake (formerly Caughnawaga), the video presents a number of people talking about the integration of native Canadians into schools, their living conditions, the assimilation of one culture by another and the different values of whites and native peoples. Another topic covered is the construction of the James Bay hydroelectric project, which was going on at that time, and the editing reveals white people's lack of understanding of a nation living next door. Laurent Girouard, archaeologist and member of the Society of Native Studies, shares his informed and passionate perspective on the actions taken or that must be taken to give a voice to native peoples. This video confers a large amount of time to natives' concerns and leads us to reflect on the responsibility of one people towards another.
