Since the 16th century, the Mi'kmaq people of New Brunswick in Canada have managed to live alongside French settlers and their descendants. In 1999, the Canadian Supreme Court rules that a past treaty gives the Mi'kmaq perpetual hunting and fishing rights, regardless of hunting season laws. As the government pushes for new conservation standards, the embattled Mi'kmaq are confronted with violent assaults and vandalization as they struggle to maintain their way of life.
