The Canary Effect
 

From multi-award winning directors Robin Davey and
Yellow Thunder Woman, comes this 'Illuminating Documentary' (Time Out).
Delving deeply into the often misunderstood and frequently over looked
historic realities of the American Indian, The Canary Effect follows
the terrifying and horrific abuses instilled upon the Indigenous people of
North America, and details the genocidal practices of the US government
and its continuing affects on present day Indian country.

Featuring interviews with the leading scholars and experts on Indian issues
including controversial author Ward Churchill, the film brings together the
past and present in a way never before captured so eloquently and boldly
on film.
