At age 81, Pete Standing Alone has come full-circle in his dedication to
preserving the traditional ways of his people. The third film in a trilogy, Round
Up traces Pete's personal journey from cultural alienation to
pride and belonging. As a spiritual elder, teacher, and community leader of
the Blood Indians of Southern Alberta, Pete's efforts to rebuild the cultural
and spiritual decimation wrought by residential schools have focused on
teaching youth the traditional ways. In his own words: "It is our duty and
responsibility as Blood Indians to keep our ways going."
