Historian Nicholas Vrooman tells the story of the origins of the Michif Song - a Sundance Song first brought down from the thunder at Buffalo Lodge Lake in about 1810 where 1500 Assiniboine, Cree, Ojibway and Michif came together to forge an "Iron Alliance". The narration is followed by Richard "Braids" Lafromboise leading a group in practicing the song at the Sundance grounds on the Turtle Mountains. Isaac Murdoch, traditional teacher talks about the historic and contemporary meaning of the song to the Michif and First Nations on the north shore of Lake Huron, Lake Superior and in Michigan. He talks about the transfer of the Red Glove to call people to a ceremony to feast the song near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
