Gather follows the stories of an indigenous chef reclaiming ancient food ways on the Apache reservation, gifted Lakota high school student proving her tribe's native wisdom through science applied to buffaloes, and a group of young men of the Yurok tribe struggling to rehabilitate the habitat of their sacred salmon. These stories combine to show how the reclaiming and recovery of ancient food ways is a way forward for native Americans to bring back health and vitality to their people.
