Summary In 1990, the town of Oka, Quebec, assumed it could build a golf course over traditional Mohawk burial grounds. Facing Canadian troops and tanks, Mohawk men, women and children stood guard over these ancient graves in what became known internationally as the Oka Standoff. Seven months after the barricades came down, Prim Minister Brian Mulroney announced the creation of a Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples. The Commission travelled to more than 100 communities and heard from more than 1,000 Aboriginal representatives. For two and a half years, director Greg Coyes and two teams of Native filmmakers, followed the Commission on its journey from coast to coast. No turning back documents this historic trip.
