Buffalo Resurrection

Documentary Feature (2019)

The Blackfeet have a prophecy that when the buffalo return to them, it marks a new beginning for the tribe. Buffalo Resurrection will capture this beginning, telling an intimate story of the growing band of Blackfeet, part of the Iinnii Initiative (“iinnii” is Blackfeet for buffalo) and the Blackfeet Buffalo Program, who are committed to a return to the old ways, to the healing and care of their wounded nation, and to the restoration of a wild buffalo herd to their reservation and the Rocky Mountains. 

Bring Them Home

Documentary Short (2018)

An intimate look at the only indigenous tribal-led buffalo drive in North America, Bring Them Home follows members of the Blackfeet Nation as they experience the power of the American bison while driving their herd through rough terrain and hostile weather to their winter pasture -- a rare ritual of stewardship that brings hope for a modern-day cultural rebirth.

Bring Them Home was made possible in part by the Big Sky Film Grant. 

Iniskim

Narrative Short (2018)

Shot on the real-life Blackfeet buffalo drive and inspired by a true story, Iniskim follows a young girl’s journey from trauma to recovery. By reconnecting with the ancient power of the buffalo and the wisdom of her culture, she makes a discovery that will change her life forever.
