Welcome to Bella Coola. Isolated in a lush valley near the Pacific Coast, surrounded by towering snowcapped mountains. For thousands of years, this territory has been home to the natives of the Nuhawk Nation, and according to their legends, they are the chosen caretakers of all that exists within this land. Theirs is a history of courage, survival, struggle and conquest that leads up to today. This show takes a look at both the physical and cultural elements of the area, and how they intertwine. The voices of the storytellers combined with a backdrop of hypnotic landscapes draw the viewer into an intimate experience, one that shares in the reawakening of the human spirit.
