The First Indigenous Heist Film Ever Produced, inspired by the work of local First Nations Archeologist Harold C. Joe, filmed here on Vancouver Island! Deep in the territory of the fictional Moquohat nation, archeologist Steve Joe (Darrel Dennis) is down on his luck. Compounding his woes, he soon learns that the Royal Western Canadian Museum (also fictional) intends to ship its current collection of Moquohat artifacts abroad for a European tour, despite local opposition. Convinced that the separation of the sacred objects from their land of origin will cause increased community suffering, Steve has little trouble gathering a ragtag team of local misfits to assist him in a daring plan: liberate the artefacts from the museum and replace them with custom fakes. The Great Salish Heist manages to pull of its engaging premise with panache, aided immensely by a standout cast populated by notable screen names..–North Hollywood Magazine
