Be­hind the bar­ri­cades

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

In Au­gust 1990, Mo­hawk war­riors at Kane­sa­take rivet the coun­try with an armed stand­off against Que­bec po­lice – and later the mil­i­tary – to save a sa­cred pine stand from a golf course ex­pan­sion. NOW goes be­hind the bar­ri­cades, where AK-47s lie strewn on the ground like bad omens, to let na­tive mil­i­tants piece to­gether the his­toric mean­ing of this elec­tric mo­ment for our read­ers.
