Feb 14th 2013, Montreal. The will to fight comes from a heart overflowing with love.

Ellen Gabriel is a Native/human right activist, and former president of Quebec Native Women (QNW). She joined the members of her community of Kanehsatà:ke in March 1990 as they erected barricades to protect The Pines from the expansion of a golf course in the municipality of Oka. She was chosen by the People of the Longhouse and then by her community to be a spokesperson for them during the 1990 Oka Crisis.
