The Hunt is adapted from the feature documentary “Gather,” a New York Times critics pick, which is now available on iTunes and Amazon. On our site, you can read an accompanying op-ed by Sanjay and the film’s executive producer A-dae Romero-Briones (Cochiti/Kiowa) emphasizing the power of strengthening traditions and relationships with the land.
