WABAN-AKI. PEOPLE FROM WHERE THE SUN RISES

WABAN-AKI. PEOPLE FROM WHERE THE SUN RISES (2006)

Yvonne M'Sadoques moves to and fro in her rocking chair. She has been living for over a century in Odanak’s abenaki community. She’s got never-ending stories to tell: “The priest came into our house and ordered us to stop dancing. He said we’d go to hell. [She stops, with a mischievous glint in her eyes]. “But, do you know what? I don’t really believe that hell exists. Do you?” M'Sadoques talks to Alanis Obomsawin, proud daughter of Odanak and one of Canada’s most important documentary makers. Obomsawin’s career closes a circle with Waban-Aki: People from Where the Sun Rises. Having dedicated forty years to telling the life of Canada’s First Nations in documentaries like Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance (1993), My Name Is Kahentiiosta (1995) or Rocks at
Whiskey Trench (2005), she returns to the village in which she grew up to talk about her own people.
