Gathering the Stories Trailer
Synopsis:The text books say we (Watlala/ Cascade) are extinct, but there are breathing testimonies to prove that wrong. Gathering the Stories: Life in the Columbia River Gorge is a film about deep connection to place, when place is the only tie left to our spiritual heritage. It documents the diaspora (we are now enrolled Cowlitz by proximity) of our tribe from the time of first white contact and the struggle to keep our heritage alive and rediscovering lost ways in an increasingly disconnected world!
