Born in 1742 in what is now New York State's Mohawk Valley, Joseph Brant's parents gave him the traditional Mohawk name Thayendanegea - 'two sticks bound together in strength'.

It is the story of a man whose name still stirs up controversy today, especially among his descendants, the people of the Six Nations

So awful a night ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antiwar sentiment in the United States had been strong since 1812, especially in the New England states, dependent on trade with Britain and Canada, now forbidden. By 1814, New England was threatening to secede. 1813 brought the American forces no victories, but in 1814, the tide seemed to turn. At the battle of Chippewa, American forces fought like regulars, and the British broke and fled. At Lundy's Lane, however, both sides fought to a standstill, with great losses, and the Americans withdrew again

La rébellion de Pontiac ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ami des Français qui contrôlaient ce territoire en 1750, Pontiac, le chef de la tribu des Odawas, vivait paisiblement dans la région des Grands-Lacs. Après la conquête de la Nouvelle-France par les Anglais, cette période de paix allait prendre fin en 1759. Les tentatives de rapprochement de Pontiac avec le général Amherst, commandant des forces britanniques, n'ont jamais abouti. En plus d'être méfiant le général avait mal évalué la force et le savoir-faire des guerriers de Pontiac, qui ont prouvé au monde que les Britanniques n'étaient pas invincibles. Ces derniers ont dû changer leurs stratégies et signer la Proclamation royale, un traité historique qui accordait aux Odawas un vaste territoire, non soumis à l'ingérence des Blancs."--Site Web de l'ONF

"En août 1885, enchaîné au box des accusés pendant deux jours, le chef des Cris des Prairies, Poundmaker, doit répondre à l'accusation d'avoir participé à une rébellion contre la reine du Canada. Poundmaker était en effet soupçonné d'avoir participé au soulèvement des Métis ayant à leur tête Louis Riel. Le ministère des Affaires indiennes du Canada et le premier ministre John A. Macdonald voyaient en lui un agitateur et l'avaient vite associé à l'insurgé Louis Riel. Secondé par Gordon et Jim Tootoosis, des descendants de Poundmaker, le réalisateur Gil Cardinal nous transporte au procès de Regina, dans les Prairies, et nous fait revivre les événements de ce printemps fatidique."--Site Web de l'ONF

Le combat de Black Hawk ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"La statue de Black Hawk surplombe aujourd'hui la rivière Mississipi, près de sa terre natale, celle des nations sauk et fox dont il était le chef. Le combat de Black Hawk, un des six épisodes de la série Chefs amérindiens, nous ramène dans l'Illinois et le Wisconsin, terre ancestrale de la tribu des Sauks. Par la transmission orale, les descendants de Black Hawk, qui habitent maintenant Oklahoma, font connaître la vie du chef et son combat contre les Américains. Le chef Black Hawk, incarné par Raoul Trujillo, explique pourquoi il s'est joint à une alliance panamérindienne alliée des Britanniques pour lutter contre les Américains lors de la Guerre de 1812. Alliance qui s'est soldée par un échec. La chute de Black Hawk, au printemps de 1832, a forcé la nation sauk à s'exiler et a bien failli entraîner sa décimation totale."--Site Web de l'ONF
Les deux mondes de Joseph Brant ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Les deux mondes de Joseph Brant relate la vie d'un Autochtone controversé, et fait un parallèle entre son héritage et sa place dans l'histoire du Canada. Le nom de Joseph Brant, Mohawk de la Confédération des Six Nations, a toujours suscité de vives émotions tant de son vivant qu'après sa mort. Ayant vécu durant la deuxième moitié du 18e siècle, Brant s'est vite identifié à la Couronne britannique, et a lutté contre la suprématie américaine. Les Américains l'appelaient d'ailleurs 'le monstre Brant'. Accusé d'avoir sabordé la Grande Confédération des Six Nations, qui remontait à 1350, Brant était même perçu comme un traître par plusieurs personnes de son peuple, qui l'accusaient d'avoir compromis le futur de la nation mohawk en vendant à rabais ou en cédant le grand territoire historique situé au sud-ouest de l'Ontario.."--Site Web de l'ONF
