NATIVE WOMEN: POLITICS GLOBAL TV (www.firstnationsfilms.com) On the changing roles of Native Women in their communities - 25 min. A Richard Hersley Production- An emotionally moving and upbeat program that gives voice to some of our finest Aboriginal women. Historical segments in the program contrast the traditional equality of power, male to female within native communities, versus the regression in the roles and power of First Nations women in Canada under European dominance. We hear the voices of strong women "leaders" on how they view the rebuilding of balanced self-government within their community in the future. The Indian Act and Bill C31 are examined to highlight their effect on First Nations women. Broadcast: Global Television - AWARD - Best Documentary, Native American Journalists Assoc.
