Abstract:

Life on the rez has never been easy, and for girls at the beginning of the 21st century, some issues seem further from resolution than ever. Mohawk Girls captures the lives of three exuberant and insightful Mohawk teenagers as they face their future. The unwritten rules of their close-knit community decree that those who move away risk their credibility, or worse, their rights as Mohawks. Those who stay give up the possibilities offered by the "outside world." A decade ago, filmmaker Tracey Deer faced the same questions. Now she returns to document two critical years in the lives of these young women, as they tackle the same issues of identity, culture, and family she faced earlier.
