This film is an interview with well-respected Maliseet Indian artist, feminist, and activist, Shirley Bear (Minqon Minqon). Shirley discusses her use of petroglyphs in her paintings, her feminist perspective on the meaning of the petroglyphs, and the spiritualism which inspires her creative process. She tells her own story, her own truths, and her feelings about them is interpretations that have been placed on rock art by non-natives. Bear suggests that we must work to achieve the harmonious relationship between men and women that existed in North America before the arrival of the Europeans.

Also available as a 16mm print with advanced notice.
