This is one of the few ceremonies when an entire family can dance and sing together.
Aitamaako'tamisskapi Natosi: Before the Sun is an award-winning documentary, including Best Feature Documentary, Best Sound, Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Scriptwriting, that takes us to the golden plains of the Blackfoot Nation of southern Alberta, to the home of Logan Red Crow, a young Siksika woman whose passion is the Indian Relay. A sport for the truly brave, the Relay's bareback riders vault from horse to horse in short, exhilarating races. The film offers the dual pleasures of serenity and suspense with leisurely, lyrical immersion in rural life as well as the thrill of rooting for victory. Logan's bond with her horses is palpable. The animals are beautiful in their mute strength, and the director honors them with loving, graceful images.
