Abstract Should Creole be on an equal footing with French in Guadeloupe? Should Quebec, Canada's French-speaking province, be a sovereign country? In this program, Guadeloupeans and Quebecois give their opinions and defend their different points of view on language-related issues that touch upon the core identities of their societies. The video also considers the divergent views of the formerly nomadic Montagnais people of Quebec as to whether the Innu reserve of Mani-Utenam is a true village or merely a corral for First Nations. Does a legal document define a village, or does its strong sense of community?
