In this traditional Tsimshian story, a young man who is teased by his brothers for being lazy and dirty trains secretly with a spirit and gains superhuman strength. He takes on warriors, animals, and even a mountain before facing his greatest challenge - the world itself.

Frank Henry Kaash Katasse is an Alaska Native from the Tlingit Tsaagweidi Clan. He is an actor, director, producer, improviser, educator, and playwright. Frank received his bachelor's degree in theater arts from the University of Hawai'i: Manoa, and is formally trained in Shakespeare, Commedia dell'arte, and Northwest Coast song and dance. His first full-length play, They Don't Talk Back, was produced as a rolling world premier with Native Voices at the Autry, Perseverance Theatre, and La jolla Playhouse in 2017. He lives in Juneau with his wife, Stacey, and children Autumn and Kaash.

David Lang was born in Juneau and raised in Southeast Alaska until moving to Washington State in his early teens. A commercial artist since 2001, David moved back to Juneau in 2009 to open High Tide Tattoo and seized the opportunity to reconnect with his Tsimshian heritage, shifting his focus and studies to the Indigenous art of the Northwest Coast, with an emphasis on Tsimshian language and culture.
