Ohero:kon - Under the Husk  is a documentary that follows the challenging journey of two Mohawk girls as they take part in their traditional passage rites to becoming Mohawk Women. Kaienkwinehtha and Kasennakohe are childhood friends from traditional families living in the Mohawk Community of Akwesasne that straddles the U.S./Canada border. They both take part in a four-year adolescent passage rites ceremony called ohero:kon "under the husk" that has been revived in their community. This ceremony challenges them spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. 

Red Power Energy is a provocative film from the American Indian perspective that reframes today's controversial energy debate while the fate of the environment hangs in the balance. The film illustrates the complex realities of Indian reservations grappling with how to balance their natural resources with their traditional beliefs. From tribes mining coal, drilling oil and fracking natural gas, to a coalition of tribes and individuals building sustainable wind farms and small-scale residential solar, this engrossing story showcases how America's indigenous population is reclaiming its right of self-determination.   Viewer Discussion Guide
