Ella's Story

Taken from her family at the age of thirteen to an Indian boarding school and consequently criminalized as a runaway, Ella Rodriguez spent her early years labeled as a juvenile delinquent. BURIED STORIES follows Ella in her seventies as she finally faces these memories. This journey extends to her ancient past as her work in archaeology unearths lost dimensions of her cultural heritage.
