Suquamish

Gyasi Ross is of both the Blackfeet nation and the Suquamish nation, and currently lives on the Port Madison Indian Reservation.  He is a father, lawyer, filmmaker and author.  For many people living on the reservation Ross is the only lawyer they know, he said, and so he gives legal advice as best he can. Above his various vocations, Ross is most passionate about being a father to his son.

Clearwater is about the health of the Puget Sound and the unique relationship of the tribal people to the water. We will meet geoduck divers, listen to elders, travel with fisherman, learn from biologists, and explore with the youth as we come to understand the beauty of the regions culture and the impending impacts of ocean acidification.
