A Conversation with the Chefs

We spoke with Chefs Crystal Wahpepah, Nephi Craig, Elena Terry and Sean Sherman about their recipes, Indigenous land stewardship and sharing the wisdom and flavor of Indigenous food.

About the Film

Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide.


Gather follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona), opening an indigenous café as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota), conducting landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California), trying to save the Klamath river.
