Movie and discussion with writer and Longhouse media’s Tracy Rector!

Long ago a maiden named Ko-kwahl-alwoot risked her life to save the Samish people from starvation. She did so by agreeing to marry a man of the sea, who threatened to take the plentiful sea life away from the area if she did not. Her reluctant father demanded that Ko-kwahl-alwoot return annually. But, after about four years of visits, it became increasingly difficult for her to return to the village. And so, today, Ko-kwahl-alwoot lives eternally underwater. The documentary tells her story and how tribal history inspires generations of Samish people.
