Return to Foretop's Father follows 78-year-old Crow tribal elder Grant Bulltail.

Return to Foretop's Father follows 78-year-old Crow tribal elder, storyteller and pipe lighter, Grant Bulltail, as he travels from Crow Agency in Montana to Heart Mountain in Wyoming. Through his journey and the stories he learned from his grandfather, He Comes Up Red, Grant reveals a dark past of genocide, ethnocide, and the destruction of nature.

Grant's mission is to bring awareness to the disconnect between people and nature, cumulating in the universal impacts of climate change. By connecting stories that have been passed down to him from generations of Native Americans, Grant presents his perspective on the modern crisis through a historic pipe ceremony at the base of the sacred Heart Mountain (Foretop's Father).

Through the eyes of a Native American elder and historian, Grant reveals a unique perspective on the importance of nature on modern society, and how the ongoing disconnect is creating a crisis from which we may never recover.
