Dancing Salmon Home follows the emotional journey of loss and reunification of the Winnemem Wintu tribe of Northern California across generations and oceans as they reunite with their long-lost salmon relatives. From their ancestral McCloud River, below Mt. Shasta, tribal members travel to New Zealand to meet the descendants of the McCloud River Chinook salmon, which have been missing from their home river for 65 years. Along the way, the 28 tribal members hold four days of ceremony beside New Zealand’s Rakaia River, forging enduring bonds with the Maori people of the region, sharing a message of respect for the natural world, and launching plans to bring their salmon home.
