Beloved Ohlone elder, Ann Marie Sayers, has devoted her life to preserve the stories and culture of her indigenous ancestors. In the Land of My Ancestors shines light on the perilous impact of colonization and settler colonialism on Ohlone people in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sayers created a refuge for many indigenous peoples in her ancestral land called the Indian Canyon to reclaim their culture, spirituality, and indigeneity. This film celebrates Sayers’ resiliency and living legacy, and is produced by South Asian photojournalist, Rucha Chitnis.
