About the film: “Gather” follows the stories of three Natives on the frontlines of a growing movement to reconnect with spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide. The stories combine to show how reclaiming and recovery of ancient food ways is a way forward for Native Americans to bring back health and vitality to their people.
