Indigenous Heritage Film Festival Feature Length Film
Sanjay Rawal’s documentary celebrates the Indigenous food sovereignty movement by following members of four tribes. They use their interests to work with community members to promote cultural traditions. Nephi Craig, a White Mountain Apache chef, is trying to combat food insecurity in his community by opening a restaurant that uses Apache-grown produce in innovative dishes. Elsie Dubray, a 17-year-old member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, uses her passion for science to analyze the benefits of a traditional buffalo-based diet. Sam Gensaw, a Yurok Tribe member, leads a group of teenagers in the preservation of the salmon fishing traditions of their tribe, while Twila Cassadore, a master forager of the San Carlos Apache, works to introduce ancient medicinal and food practices to the youth in her community.
