The Muckleshoot Canoe Family sat in the crowd to show support, business leaders from Silicon Valley and at risk youth were also in attendance. The film director and producers, Sarah Del Seronde and Paul Stoll, were on hand to answer questions about the year and half collaboration of Aboriginal Lens and Fluffy Bear Production. And Jimi Simmons and Karen Rudolph were met with a standing ovation when the film closed and faded to black.
