In this revealing documentary, Tracy Assing explores Trinidad’s indigenous history and the inner workings of the organization which represents these indigenous descendants, the Santa Rosa Carib Community–the only recognized group representing indigenous descendants in Trinidad and Tobago. Until now, Amerindian descendants have depended on the stories of their grandparents and great-grandparents for their history, while the indigenous story of survival has been written out of the history books. Assing walks us through her own exploration of the history of the Santa Rosa Community while her great aunt, the Carib Queen, prepares to join the Great Spirit.
