SHOOT BACK is a manifesto of sorts, inviting a reversal / refusal of the traditional tropes of representing native stories. A constellation of Mohawk, Ojibway, Abenaki, and Inuk artists and filmmakers discuss their own practices and processes, debate their disentanglement from the grips of colonial storytelling, and propose instead an energized and authentic engagement with places, people, and histories.
