Gather Together; a 56 minute video documentary focusing on the importance of family to the continuation of culture. 

This is Part II in a series about Julia's life perspectives 
as a California Indian basket weaver, storyteller, and tribal elder with The Federated Indians Of Graton Rancheria.
Julia travels throughout California gathering materials for 
her basketry and traditional skills. She also travels 
throughout the United States teaching other native groups 
about her basketry in an effort to encourage the continuation 
of Native American culture.

Julia's family is her basic
support group, in this video we will meet her husband Ralph, her daughter Lucy as well as her grand and great-grand Children. We will also see how the continuation of culture 
begins and continues within this family and how the extended 
tribal network benefits from their example.
