Out In The Cold

 

(2009, 13 min, $5.00)

This docu-drama follows the story of Marcia and her daughter as they are evicted from their home on Marcia's ex-husband's reserve after the marriage breaks down. The video explains how divorce laws that protect most Canadians do not apply to someone like Marcia. The laws that discriminate against women or men who do not have the title to their home on reserve is decided by Matrimonial Real Property laws through the Indian Act. Out In The Cold contains interviews with female elders about the traditional roles and responsibilities that Aboriginal women had in the home. The documentary also features an interview with the former president of the Native Women's Association of Canada Bev Jacobs.
