About Six Strings

Join us for a special screening of SIX STRINGS and a selection of other indigenous made short films, as well as a panel discussion with the creators, wampum belt storytelling with Jamie Maracle, and special musical guests! Proceeds will be donated to Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na. On June 10th, 1800, a bitter dispute between rival factions within the Mohawk Village on the Bay of Quinte escalated into violence and the bloody murder of a father and his son, with others critically wounded.
Six Strings is the compelling, revealing and true account of how the Mohawk people conducted their own system of justice long before the Indian Act. This event represents a moment in time before Indigenous people were obliged to abide by the British colonial court system.
