“Groundworks” introduces viewers to four diverse Native performers who come together in a collaborative performance on Alcatraz Island, on San Francisco’s first official Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The collaborators bring to life the history of Indigenous people’s connection to the land, as well as the contemporary outcry for restoration of Native people’s rights and relationship to land. Through moving oral history and stunning traditional dance, the film documents how Native groups and traditions relate to each other geographically and culturally as they collaborate on land reclamation advocacy.
