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."
