Hasonta: The Lost Tribe is a fictional depiction of the lives of the Tolowa Native American Nation in the early 1800’s on the Northwest Pacific Coast. The Cheti and Winchuck/Hasonta Tolowa tribes lived in harmony with human needs similar to our modern-day life. Resolution and restoration drive the story forward in the life of one woman, Natu, who perhaps lived through the entire saga. When suddenly lost from her tribe, the love of her life, Jashan searches endlessly to find her.
Natu’s journey shows us the fragile human life and emotions through many twists and turns. The evil hearts of a few tribal members, causes Natu to search for strength and determination as her journey leads her into three separate tribes. Her one thought is to return to her grandmother and Jashan.
