Freedom Babies

“This documentary follows Kanahus over the course of a year as she raises her babies decolonized and free from the restrictions of the Canadian government. Kanahus and her father, Arthur Manuel, reminisce about the plight they have faced against the Canadian government in their effort to fight against colonization by encouraging Indigenous people to live free. She leads by example by living traditionally according to her First Nations culture, living off the land and in an underground earth pit house. Kanahus and Guateberi raise their four children in a warrior school that teaches the traditional values of respect for the land and taking care of the people. Kanahus, defies the laws that oppress and colonize her people by not registering her four children with the Canadian government. She’s been imprisoned and beaten, the police have broken into and ransacked her home without a search warrant, but she is as determined as the day she began this journey thirteen years ago. She educates her children decolonized as Freedom Babies.”
