How do you resist cultural assimilation and maintain a sense of history and tradition in the face of recurring aggression? White Ravens is a critically important lesson about how a people can stand together and fight back with power and dignity. The men and women featured in the film share their stories of pain, anger, and trauma. But it is their resilience, respect for tradition, and deep love for the natural world that most endures.
