Club Native

Tracey Deer’s documentary Club Native is showing at Toronto’s NFB Mediatheque (150 John St.) on June 21, 23, 34, and 25. I saw this terrific film at the Hot Docs festival in April. It tells the stories of four women who live in Kahnawake (a Mohawk reserve in Quebec). Two of the women are the offspring of mixed marriages (they have one Mohawk parent and one white or black parent), and two of the women have fallen in love with non-Native men. All four women face the possibility of losing their membership in the reserve as a result.
