Date: May 27 @ 7PM
Admission by Donation
Celebrate the incredible history of Indigenous ironworkers with “Little Caughnawaga: To Brooklyn and Back”; Six Nations Tourism‘s selection for May’s #MovieMonday.
Delve into the Mohawk community in this feature-length documentary about the steel workers who hold a special place in North American history. The iconic New York skyline, with all its monuments to modernity, is the fruit of their labour. And while the men were scraping the skies, the women had their feet firmly on the ground, sustaining a vibrant community in the heart of Brooklyn.
Admission is by donation, and refreshments and popcorn will be provided. Don’t forget to bring your refillable water bottle, or purchase your very own from Six Nations Tourism.
This hour-long documentary tells the personal story of Mohawk filmmaker Reaghan Tarbell from Kahnawake, Quebec, as she explores her roots and traces the connections of her family to the Mohawk community in Brooklyn, New York.
Showing will be at the Gathering Place by the Grand, with doors opening at 6:30PM. Arrive early to get the best seat.
