Raven People Rising

Director: Andrea Palframan

Raven People Rising chronicles the Heilstuk Nation’s efforts to chart a sustainable course through the troubled waters of the Great Bear Sea.   After the Nathan E. Stewart oil barge ran aground in their Great Bear Rainforest home, the Heilstuk took to the courts. Stunning footage combines with compelling storytelling to paint an urgent picture of a people poised to change the conversation about First Nations’ rights in Canada.
