In 2015, the Colorado River Indian Tribes turned 150 years old, with the anniversary of the founding of the reservation in 1865. To commemorate the occasion, the CRIT Tribal Council commissioned a special documentary film to document this moment in the history of these people, this land and their story. It was the first in a series which continues the Tribes’ oral tradition in cinematic form.
