For 170 years, a Native American Cajun community has occupied Isle de Jean Charles, a tiny island deep in the bayous of South Louisiana. For these Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Indians, their land is more than simply a place to live. It is the epicenter of their people and traditions. Here, for eight generations, their ancestors cultivated a unique part of Louisiana culture. Now the land that has sustained them is vanishing before their eyes.

Coastal erosion, lack of soil renewal, oil company and government canals, and a rising sea level--are overwhelming the gradually shrinking island.

With millions of gallons of oil polluting the waters surrounding the island, the livelihoods of many islanders--fishermen, shrimpers, and oystermen--have been halted. Those who vowed to stay on the island until it completely washed away now face an even more uncertain future.

This film tells their story.

Film runs approximate 30 minutes; Q&A with Filmmaker Rebecca Ferris, and Light Luncheon Reception to follow.
