Trailer for the Feature length Docu-Drama The Sinix't, Bringing Home the Bones.
A film about a group of aboriginal peoples falsely declared extinct and disenfranchised from their right to enter and remain in their ancestral homeland within the country of Canada in order for a controversial damming system to be put in place without dispute on the Columbia river system in BC.
Here is the story of their struggle to shed this "ghost" status and return to the land where their ancestors bones lay, just 50 years after being declared extinct. The Sinix't people have been fighting their "extinction" for the last 25 years, as well as setting precedent for the return of their ancestors bones from museums throughout the province.
