The dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi’kmaq reserve of Red Crow. The exception is Indigenous inhabitants who are strangely immune to the zombie plague. Traylor (Michael Greyeyes), the local tribal law enforcement, armed with a gun, a hangover, and a six-pack, must protect his son’s pregnant girlfriend, apocalyptic refugees, and drunken reserve riffraff from the hordes of walking white corpses infesting the streets of Red Crow.\n
Conversation to follow with Jeff Barnaby and Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (Blackfoot/Sámi), moderated by Justin Mugits, National Museum of the American Indian.
