Indigenous tribes meet in Saskatchewan: shots of several Indigenous tribes from Canada and the United States meeting at an international Powwow. Shots of chiefs sitting on the ground in full headdresses, of a US Chief addressing the gathering (silent), of Chiefs rubbing ceremonial pipe, of Chiefs in colorful headdresses performing a dance of peace. TILT DOWN to a wigwam. HALSs of parked cars, of wigwams on the prairie where a rodeo is being held by attending tribes. Shots of a wigwam, of an Indigenous Chief and an Indigenous woman with a papoose on her back emerging from a wigwam, a telephone pole is visible in the background. Shot of a Chief pointing across the hills to a prairie and cattle grazing.
