The secrets of the Butte Tribe began at Bayou Bourbeaux over two hundred years ago. Only a handful of warriors at any given time knew the secret of Butte Hill, Chief Rodger Collum has spent a lifetime guarding it. One of the main themes in the documentary is the importance of preserving and protecting tribal land for future generations. Chief Collum plays a central role in the film as a guardian of sacred spaces and traditions within his community. Through their exploration of Chief Collum and his responsibilities as a leader, the filmmakers delve into themes of generational guardianship and the cultural significance of tribal land.
