Director TRACY RECTOR, LOU KARSEN

Short | USA | 27 m

Long ago a maiden named Ko-kwahl-alwoot risked her life to save the Samish people from starvation. She did so by agreeing to marry a man of the sea, who threatened to take the plentiful sea-life away from the area if she did not. Her reluctant father demanded that Ko-kwahl-alwoot return annually. But, after about four years of visits, it became increasingly difficult for her to return to the village. And so, today, Ko-kwahl-alwoot lives eternally underwater. The documentary The Maiden of Deception Pass: Guardian of Her Samish People tells her story and how tribal history inspires generations of Samish people.
