Keepers of the Fire by Metis filmmaker Christine Welsh is a 54-minute documentary about the contemporary role of Native women in Canada. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada this 1994 DVD profiles Mohawk, Haida, Ojibwe, and Maliseet women who are defending and protecting their peoples' cultural traditions and lands. Whether it is Ellen Gabriel during the Oka crisis or Shirley Bear's artistic creations, these women show determination and spirit as they defend their culture's sovereignty. Christine Welsh travelled to Quebec, the Queen Charlotte Islands, New Brunswick and the largest urban centre in Ontario to document the work of these women.
