abstract
This program focuses the spotlight on a region that crackles with both aboriginal and linguistic nationalism. The politics of language is at the heart of the battle for a unilingual French-speaking society; at the same time, a different yet similar battle is going on in the icy north, where the Cree people are fighting the Quebec government over territory the Cree claim—an example of an aboriginal group using the language of European nationalism to advance its claims. Quebec raises the question of whether a single federal state can survive if it contains a couple of nations and two major language groups.
language note
English, French and Cree dialog, with English subtitles.
