Eagle Bone

One of the first VR pieces ever created by a Native American filmmaker, Eagle Bone (CH’AAK’ S’AAGI) is a collective step in a new direction of visual storytelling rooted in being unapologetically Indigenous. Through freestyle spoken word and lush Pacific Northwest scenes, we enter into a VR journey of remembrance and reflection on the lessons of the old ones. Teachings that remind us that we are all individual vessels of spirit and change yet inextricably connected.
