    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This is a trailer for the documentary “A Journey Upstream: The Past and Presence of an ‘Extinct’ People,” directed by anthropology PhD candidate Erica Kowsz. The project documents the history and continued presence of the Sinixt, or Arrow Lakes people, in British Columbia, despite the Canadian government having pronounced the Sinixt “extinct” in 1956. This trailer, associated with a thirty-five-minute video, is itself distilled from over thirty hours of footage. The project involved working with multiple stakeholders—students, faculty members from different institutions, Indigenous leaders and educators, and local activist communities—an ambitious task for a project begun during undergraduate study, especially regarding negotiating ownership rights and access management. Currently only the trailer is publically available online; the full-length video has been shared with participants and select audiences for educational purposes. This artifact demonstrates the necessarily collaborative aspects of ethnographic fieldwork and the complexities of engaging simultaneously in digital video production.
