The 57-minute film documents the landmark trial of Sinixt Ceremonial Hunter Rick Desautel, who in 2010 was charged with illegal hunting on ancestral lands. 到西奈山，打猎 on ancestral land is an aboriginal right gifted to them by Creator. 然而,他们 have been legally denied this right since 1956, when the Canadian government unjustly declared the tribe extinct. The Sinixt’s courageous fight and legal victory becomes a pivotal precedent for other Native tribes struggling for reconciliation with their homelands, as well as an emotional recognition of a people’s right to exist.
“This documentary is a tribute to the strength and resilience of generations of our people who struggled against overwhelming colonial forces and fought for our very survival,” said Rodney Cawston, chairman of the Colville Confederated Tribes. “有 at least part of our story finally told is very gratifying. For well over 150 years, the Sinixt have sacrificed and lost so much. Rick Desautel honors all of our ancestors and this film is for them.”
“Older Than the Crown” is directed by Derrick LaMere. LaMere, Shelly Boyd and Meghan 弗朗西斯是制片人. The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation is the 执行制片人. This is a War Pony Pictures Production and copyright by the Colville Tribes of the Colville Reservation.
