The Hunt

Video with

This short film “The Hunt,” by Sanjay Rawal, follows two characters—Chef Nephi Craig of the White Mountain Apache Nation and master forager Twila Cassadore of the San Carlos Apache Nation—as they work with Indigenous foodways to promote processes of healing and recovery from historical trauma.

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.


Sanjay Rawal is a James Beard Award-winning filmmaker. His films include Ocean Monk, Food ChainsChallenging Impossibility3100: Run and Become, and Gather.


A-dae Romero-Briones (Cochiti/Kiowa) is a U.S. Fulbright Scholar and has written extensively about food safety, the Produce Safety rule and tribes, and the protection of tribal traditional foods. She is the executive producer for The Hunt.
