FILM: yáa at wooné
Herring Protectors created this film to share the way of life and original instructions that are rooted to the herring in Lingít Aaní. The film Yáa at Wooné: Respect for All Things takes viewers through five parts (the Herring, History, Harvest, Risk, and Ceremony) to show the importance of herring for thousands of years, the risks they currently face, and envision a way forward that centers Indigenous sovereignty and traditional ecological knowledge.
