    This documentary portrait of a small Native American tribe struggling to retain what is left of its culture focuses on 77-year-old Marie Smith, the last of Alaska's Eyak Indians to speak the language of her people. The video follows Marie on an emotional journey back to her childhood home along the cost of Prince William Sound, where she presides over a traditional Potlatch ceremony, during which tribal members discuss ways to revive and redefine their threatened culture.
