abstract
For half a millenium, native women have been at the forefront of aboriginal peoples' resistance to cultural assimilation. This program profiles contemporary Canadian native women who, in the time-honoured traditions of their foremothers, are fighting for the survival of their cultures and their peoples. The Oka crisis, the plight of the Haida Gwaii of British Columbia and of the Maliseet of Tobique, New Brunswick, and the Toronto women's shelter, Anduhyaun, are given as examples.
