Divided Loyalties (TV Movie) (1990)

Divided Loyalties was a dramatization of one of the pivotal periods of Canadian history. At the heart of the story is the figure of Joseph Brant, played by Jack Langedijk. An Iroquois chief of the mid-1700s, he was a powerful figure in the complex native-colonist circle that existed in Canada just prior to the American revolution. When American and British forces clashed in Lower Canada, Brant sided with the British in hopes of strengthening his people's position in the post-war British North America. Unfortunately, Brant ended up torn between his political loyalties, and those he felt for family and friends on both sides of the conflict.
