"The Kumeyaay Nation at one time lived throughout this region and is currently comprised of 13 reservations scattered across San Diego County and four in northern Baja California.  The Kumeyaay people who live on and off these reservations share a heritage that goes back, in their words, "to the beginning of time". This Emmy nominated film explores some aspects of this resilient culture.
