Nika, Tanya and Vince Collison and 23 other Haida delegates travel 3,000 miles to New York City to reclaim their ancestors' remains from the American Museum of Natural History. As part of their pilgrimage, they are invited by the Smithsonian to view and handle precious Haida artifacts housed at the National Museum of the American Indian and have the opportunity to use these pieces in ceremonial dance. Their journey culminates with the return to Skidegate and burial of the centuries-old remains.
