2013 Official Selection

The Blue Creek Ah Pah Traditional Village Project is an effort to create a place for culture, language and salmon restoration along the banks of the Lower Klamath River. By working together to rebuild a traditional Brush Dance House, plank house and sweat lodge, members of the lower Klamath Tribes (Yurok, Karuk and Hupa) are working together to keep the old ways alive. The voices of David Tripp, Willard Carlson Jr, and Brian Tripp tell the story of the village. Merkie Oliver makes a few cameo appearances too.
