daapinan zhitwaawinan - Take the life of ceremonies

In an expression of loss and gain, the taking away and picking up, can we really ever reclaim the things that have been lost?  Using stop - frame digital imagery and digital video, the ebb and flow of language and culture as witnessed by a young anishinaabe man comes to the fore.

John Hupfield is a writer, filmmaker and member of the Wasauksing First Nation.  One of the nine tribes of the Potawatomi Nation. 

LED light show from the entrance of Potawatomi Bingo with terrible music selection by producer.
