At the 1956 gathering of the Káínaa of Alberta, the exciting spectacle of the Sun Dance was captured on film for the first time. The film examines Káínaa culture and spirituality, showing how the theme of the circle reflects their connection to wildlife, and addresses the predicament of the young generation--those who have relinquished their ties with their own culture but have not yet found a firm place in a changing world.
