This video explores border tensions at Akwesasne, a Mohawk reservation that rests at the meeting place of three different nations– Canada, the United States, and the Mohawk.
In the years since 9/11, this region has become the site of human rights violations committed by border security agents, a controversial gun policy adopted by the Canadian federal government, and robust indigenous activism led by Akwesasne residents.
The video highlights these border issues along with the Mohawk perspective on sovereignty.
