Having worked very closely with the First Nations people along the Remote Coast of British Columbia, I really enjoyed this story. The Mowachaht / Muchalaht people are very welcoming and open as well as very much into their history and culture. Mike Maquinna is very accurately portrayed towards the end of the film with the way he is in real life. He has a true passion for his people and is one of the most level-headed and down to earth chiefs that I have ever met. Anyone who is interested in learning about First Nations culture, beliefs, and values, this is a must see. I gave it a nine simply because it would have been nice to see a little bit more of the culture of the people and use this as even more of an educational film. One of Luna's favorite things was to follow the vessel Uchuck III, and it would have been good to see that in there a little bit more along the coast up into Yuquot (Friendly Cove). Other than that, I'd say it's a great story and would highly recommend it!
