About Gather ☀☀☀ The feature documentary GATHER is the intimate portrait of a growing movement amongst Indigenous Americans to reclaim their spiritual and cultural identities through obtaining sovereignty over their ancestral food systems, while battling against the historical trauma brought on by centuries of genocide. Executive Produced by Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Justice League), the film follows the individual stories of several natives on the frontlines of this movement to reconnect with their spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide: An indigenous chef who embarks on an ambitious project to reclaim ancient food ways on the Apache reservation; a gifted Lakota high school student, raised on a buffalo ranch proving her tribes native wisdom through her passion for science; and a group of young men of the Yurok tribe in Northern California who are struggling to keep their culture alive and rehabilitate the habitat of their sacred salmon.
