BEE NATION follows the inspirational stories of Indigenous youth living on reserves in Saskatchewan as they participate in the first-ever First Nations Provincial Spelling Bee in Canada.

An indigenous chef embarks on a ambitious project to reclaim ancient food ways on the Apache reservation; in South Dakota a gifted Lakota high school student, raised on a buffalo ranch, is proving her tribes native wisdom through her passion for science; and a group of young men of the Yurok tribe in Northern California are struggling to keep their culture alive and rehabilitate the habitat of their sacred salmon.
