The Watchman’s Canoe

In 1969, Jett, a girl of mixed Caucasian and indigenous descent, is forced to move with her mother and brother to a reservation. Her brother abandons her to join the local Fort Gang Boys, who relentlessly torment her as she does everything she can to get into their boys-only group. After meeting a neighbor and tribal watchman, Jett unwillingly embarks on a spiritual journey into the world of Native American story and belief. Pursued by the Fort Gang Boys, Jett seeks out an island where an ancient spirit will awaken her ability to grasp the true meaning of her purpose as a human being.
