Despite the history, trauma and devastating loss, there is a somewhat renewed sense of commitment to the land and for future generations. As Blackfoot Elder Narcisse Blood once spoke "the folly is when we think man is it." We must respect all life. History deepens our sense of place and reveals the mistakes of civilization. While acknowledging the human rights abuses of the past, the filmmakers also discover a sense of joy and hope for the future. As it turns out, an elder in the making is a responsibility we all share.
