This is a film about the Indian tribes of the Klamath river ecosystem.
The Klamath River of Oregon and California is one of the most important salmon runs in the United States. While it is a shadow of what it once was, it still supports an abundance of life and diverse economies all concerned with its future course.
This is a film about the Indian tribes of the Klamath river ecosystem - what the Klamath means to them and how they draw on traditional and modern resources to restore its strength, beauty and balance.The film focuses on several tribes of the Klamath River Basin - the Yurok, Hoopa, and Karuk. Yet this story has implications for any number of river ecosystems and indigenous peoples around the world. Through the self described Fish People of the Klamath, the film reminds us how the health of a people and the health of its lands are integrally linked.
