Where the Waters Blend explores the day-to-day life of a modern-day, non-reservation dwelling indian tribe. The Piscataway people’s ongoing struggle to retain and share their heritage frames the journey of Cryz - the two-spirit daughter of the tribal chairwoman - from rejection to acceptance of her leadership role in the tribe.

So, I fell asleep last night to the relaxing sounds of rain and distant thunder. Around 01:00, I was awakened by the sudden, violent movement of the boat in her slip as she was brought up hard against her mooring lines and rolled about 15 degrees to port. There were the sounds of things crashing - both inside and outside the boat - and dock lines squeaking and moaning under the sudden strain. I was instantly out of bed, turning on lights and looking out on deck to see what was going on.
