On February 28, 2006, members of the Iroquois Confederacy blockaded a highway near Caledonia, Ontario to prevent a housing development on land within their traditional territories. The resulting confrontation made national headlines for months, but less well known was the crucial role played by the clan mothers of the community.

Six Miles Deep is an inspiring and compelling portrait of a group of women whose actions have led a cultural re-awakening in their traditionally matriarchal community.
