“You can flood the path, but we’ll always find our way back” The 5 tribes (Colville Confederated Tribes, Couer D'Alene, Kalispel, Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, Spokane) of the Upper Columbia River unite on the water in traditional canoes for the first time since the Grand Coulee Dam flooded their traditional waterways 76 years ago. Narrated by Sherman Alexie Directed by Derrick LaMere Sponsored by Upper Columbia United Tribes a War Pony Pictures Production.
