His mission is to connect the Ute people with the mountains that they were displaced from and work towards restoring balance through his own reciprocity. This film will call on anyone who spends time in the mountains to feel a deeper connection to the land and embrace traditional Indigenous ethics when fighting for the preservation of these sacred places.
