FILM SYNOPSIS

Three Indigenous women hold knowledge of Cedar, passed down from their grandmothers and mothers. They commune with this sacred tree as they practice and share their culture and art in both traditional and contemporary contexts. Cedar is a life-giver. Cedar is a transformer. Cedar Tree of Life reveals how each woman uses the material/medicine of Cedar and how it expresses itself through them. From garments, to homes, to a burial material for those who have passed on, Cedar was and is inextricably linked to all aspects of life for Salish peoples.
