John produces archival video of Grant Bulltail, a Crow elder trained in the traditional way of memorizing old knowledge. Storytelling is done in English, Apsaalooke, and Native American Sign language to capture meanings that don’t translate. Ethnobotany is the study of a region's plants and their practical uses through the traditional knowledge of a local culture and people.
