From the Northwest Resistance of 1885 and for over 60 years, the Canadian Government denied
many Indigenous peoples of the prairies the basic freedom to leave their reserves, all the while
knowing there was no basis in law for the policy. This investigative documentary features Cree,
Saulteaux, Dene, Ojibwe and Blackfoot Elders and their stories of living under and resisting the
system, revealing a little-known picture of life under segregation in Canada.
