Groundworks profiles the California Native co-creators of Groundworks a dance performance on Alcatraz Island commemorating San Francisco's first official Indigenous Peoples Day. The performance took place nearly 50 years after the Indians of All Tribes occupied Alcatraz and first brought attention to Native American rights. By exploring these artists' creative practices, Groundworks highlights their contemporary relationships to the Pomo, Ohlone, Tongva, and Wappo/Onastatis territories, languages, and traditions. Their efforts to re-story the land through creative reclamation are important facets of the Land Back movement.
