Film Description:
"North of Vancouver, 500 km up-coast, live the Bella Bella Indians of Campbell Island. Since the coming of the white man these fishing people have watched their ancient Heiltsuk culture and their independence all but disappear. Today, in an energetic attempt to become self-sufficient, they are regaining both -- successfully combining a plan for economic development with a program of cultural revival."
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
