ABOUT THE FILM
This visually breathtaking film follows the Xeni Gwet’in community on an epic journey through the remote and beautiful Tsilhqot’in (Chilcotin Country) where wild horses still roam. Traveling 200 km by wagon train from Nemiah Valley, BC, to the famous Williams Lake stampede, this annual 8-day trek honours a 94-year tradition of inclusion, trade and relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Free of modern transportation and technological devices, youth and elders negotiate with nature for food and shelter on a healing journey leading to individual wholeness and a welcome view of the Xeni Gwen’t with the reins in their own hands.
