The Return

Film Synopsis

A story about the return of Fr. Jacques Marquette’s bones to their original burial place in the Northern Great Lakes Basin. His remains were carried there by Native American descendants of the people among whom this 17th century “Black Robe” and pipe carrier lived a life of advocacy and service. Witness the remarkable efforts of the Anishinabeg (Original) people as they come together to honor Marquette’s final wish - to be brought home to Ettakwaamshing (The Place of the Lookout).
