The Washing of Tears

The Washing of Tears
Tells the history of the Mowachaht Tribe of Canada, one of the great whaling societies of the north Pacific, once famous for their skill in the pursuit of huge whales. In recent times, however, they have been stripped of important spiritual artifacts and forced to relocate to Vancouver Island, causing the disintegration of their culture. This video shows their attempt to regain their artifacts, move to a more desirable location, and rebuild their culture.
