Dust n’ Bones examines the challenges and mysteries of dealing with the discovery, preservation, and re-interment of First Nations artefacts and remains. These themes are realized through traditional gravedigger, filmmaker and archaeology assistant Harold Joe as he works to re-dedicate human remains to sacred burial sites on the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island. Dust n’ Bones brings to light the legal, political, historical and spiritual challenges faced by First Nations leaders and archaeologists as they fight to give disinterred ancestors their proper reverence.
