This 20-minute film produced and directed by former KCTS producer Katie Jennings was created for use in the Seattle Art Museum’s third-floor Pacific Northwest galleries. Was part of the exhibit, Song, Story, Speech: Oral Traditions of Puget Sounds First People.

Chosen at a young age as the bearer of the language, oral traditions, art and spirituality of the Twana people of Hood Canal, he now races time and ailing health to pass his knowledge on to those who wish to learn.
