Little Caughnawaga : To Brooklyn and Back( Visual )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mohawk high steel workers have a special place in North American history. The iconic New York skyline - with its great monuments to modernity - is the fruit of their labour. While the men were scraping the skies, the women had their feet firmly on the ground - sustaining a vibrant Mohawk community in the heart of Brooklyn. Little Caughnawaga evokes the neighbourhood's heyday - from the 1920s through to the 60s - and salutes the spirited women who kept the culture alive. The Brooklyn Mohawks were mostly from Kahnawake, a community long associated with the dangerous world of high steel. In 1907 the small town lost 33 men in the Quebec Bridge disaster, an event that still looms large in collective memory. Moving back and forth between Brooklyn and Kahnawake, director Reaghan Tarbell crafts an affectionate portrait of Little Caughnawaga ad a heartfelt tribute to the cultural resilience of her people

For over 50 years, the Kahnawake Mohawks of Quebec, Canada, occupied a 10-square-block hub in the North Gowanus section of Brooklyn, which became known as Little Caughnawaga. The men, skilled ironworkers, came to New York in search of work and brought their wives, children and often, extended family with them. This film is the personal story of Mohawk filmmaker Reaghan Tarbell from Kahnawake, Quebec as she explores her roots and traces the connections of her family to the once legendary Mohawk community through the stories of the women who lived there

Documentaire. "Tandis que les monteurs de hautes charpentes métalliques mohawks assemblaient les gratte-ciel emblématiques de Manhattan, leurs femmes, elles, gardaient les pieds sur terre et assuraient le maintien d'une communauté pleine de vitalité au cœur même de Brooklyn. Dans son documentaire, la cinéaste Reaghan Tarbell évoque les beaux jours de cette collectivité, entre les années 1920 et 1960, et rend hommage à la résilience de ses compatriotes mohawks"--[Conteneur]
Aboriginal architecture, living architecture( Visual )

Aboriginal architecture living architecture offers a fascinating in-depth look into the diversity of North American Native architecture. Featuring expert commentary and stunning imagery, this program provides a virtual tour of seven aboriginal communities-- Pueblo, Mohawk, Inuite, Crow, Navajo, Coast Salish, and Haida-- revealing how each is actively reinterpreting and adapting traditional forms for contemporary purposes. Everyone is familiar with certain types of Aboriginal architecture. Traditional igloos and teepees are two of the most enduring symbols of North America itself. But how much do we really know about the types of structures Native Peoples designed, engineered, and built? For more than three hundred years, Native communities in North America have had virtually no indigenous architecture. Communities have made do with low cost government housing and community projects designed by strangers in far-away places. Thankfully, across the continent, political, financial, and cultural changes have created a renaissance of Native design. Mordern Aboriginal architects are turning to ancient forms, adapting them in response to changes in the natural and social environment, and creating contemporary structures that hearken to the past. Employing old and new materials and techniques, and with an emphasis on harmony and balance, Native designers are successfully melding current community needs with tradition. The resulting buildings are testaments to the enduring strength and ingenuity of Aboriginal design
