The Nisga'a tribe of northwestern British Columbia has long led the fight for aboriginal rights in Canada. In TIME IMMEMORIAL, Hugh Brody chronicles the Nisga'a struggle as they take their case for land rights all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada. Documentary footage, archival material, and interviews recount the cultural clash over four generations of Nisga'a, which only now is receiving official attention from the provincial government, 119 years after British Columbia became a part of Canada.
