The Canary Effect

The Canary Effect: the facts are harsh and dealt as mercilessly as they were inflicted

The Canary Effect takes an in-depth look at the devastating effect that US policies have had on the indigenous people of America. From multi-award winning directors Robin Davey and Yellow Thunder Woman, comes this ‘Illuminating Documentary’ (Time Out).

The Canary EffectDelving deeply into the often misunderstood and frequently overlooked historic realities of the American Indian, The Canary Effect follows the terrifying and horrific abuses instilled upon the Indigenous people of North America, and details the genocidal practices of the US government and its continuing affects on present day Indian country.

Featuring interviews with the leading scholars and experts on Indian issues including the controversial author Ward Churchill, the film brings together the past and present in a way never before captured so eloquently and boldly on film. The grim legacy of America’s treatment of its native peoples is explored in detail in this documentary.

Filmmakers Robin Davey and Yellow Thunder Woman take the perspective that if one is to define “genocide” as the a deliberate effort by a government to exterminate a people, then the United States is clearly guilty of the crime given their actions against America’s indigenous population over the past 300 years.

Davey and Thunder Woman back up their argument with footage detailing the economic marginalization of American Indians, the consistent violation of legal agreements reached with native tribes, the mismanagement and consistent neglect of Indian reservations, the brutalization of Native Americans as they were segregated onto flinty soil and forced to live under substandard conditions, and the refusal of the mass media to report stories of suicide and Columbine-style school shootings among reservation youth.

“Like the miner’s canary, the Indian marks the shift from fresh air to poison gas in our political atmosphere, and our treatment of the Indians, even more than our treatment of other minorities, reflects the rise and fall of our democratic faith.” ― Felix S. Cohen, Yale Law Review (February 1953)
