Herring are the foundation of all things we love in Southeast Alaska. These fish connect us culturally, spiritually, and historically. From salmon to seals, eagles to whales, or blanched eggs on our stove tops, herring provide critical energy and nutrition to our communities and ocean ecosystems. This documentary shows the importance of herring for thousands of years, the risks they currently face, and envisions a way forward that centers Indigenous sovereignty and traditional ecological knowledge.
