The film uses photographic images of the Catholic missionary school in Desmet , Idaho from the late nineteenth century to the present to represent the contradictions and complexities surrounding the religious conversion and formal schooling of tribal children by the Jesuit order of priests and the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. Narratives describing their school experiences by adult members of the tribe both challenge and support the story told in the pictures. The film has screened at the American Studies Conference, Warm Springs Reservation, OR in April of 2004,the International Visual Sociology Conference in London, U.K., July of 2003,and the International Conference on Global Education in Havana, Cuba, Oct of 2004.
