Tlina: The Rendering of Wealth - Barbara Cranmer (DVD)
By Barb Cranmer
The filmmaker travels with her family and friends on their annual journey to their sacred place known as Dzawadi. Here, in British Columbia's Knight Inlet, they practice the traditional rendering of oil, t'łina, from the tiny eulachon fish. Traded throughout the Pacific Northwest for thousands of years, t'łina remains a vital food staple, trade good, and symbol of cultural wealth.
