Homecoming follows Jason Baldes, an Eastern Shoshone and a member of the InterTribal Buffalo Council, as he leads historic transfers of bison to Indigenous communities. They maintain their herds to supply a healthy food source and cultural touchstone for their tribal citizens. Restoring this animal to tribal communities means they can begin to heal from the loss of their land, language and culture. The film explores what living among the bison once again means for Native people — today and for future generations.
