Naanii Mary Swanson (a last speaker, otherwise known as one of the final living speakers of a nearly extinct language) frames this portrait of age-old traditions at risk. Against the spectacular scenery of the North Pacific coastline, her ancient words set the tone for detailed views on modern life, in which the labor of survivalcutting seaweed fronds, pulling salmon from nets, plucking young spruce tipsspeaks to timeless rhythms from our region that still retain elements of sacred ritual.

An intimate ethnographic reflection, this meditative film encounter with the Haida people's traditional food systems reveals poignant possibility amid deep loss.
