O'Siem

Top of page

Gene Harry is a remarkable person. A devoted husband, father and foster father, he is also an Indian Shaker Church Minister, a champion dragon boat and long-boat canoe paddler, and an Eagle Spirit Dancer in the traditional Salish Long House. When Gene speaks, people listen. And when he addresses a crowd, his oratorical skills are so powerful, every person in the audience imagines he is speaking directly to them. O'Siem is a documentary portrait of a humble, yet charismatic, First Nations spiritual healer.
