Her family, including mother Kathryn and older sister Susan, has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Julie parents struggle with her father's unemployment and her sister, Susan, finds solace in a summer fling with Tom, a not-to-bright local logger. The story opens with a 16th century Spanish sailors landing their launch on the beach of Manzanita. They carry a treasure chest up Neahkahnie Mountain, leading a manacled black slave. The treasure is buried and the slave killed and laid on top of the ground to "guard" the treasure and frighten the Indians away.

The Elk becomes Julie's silent, watchful guide and protector as she becomes fascinated by the legend of the Tillamook Treasure and ... Written by
Indian flute music is performed by Jan Michael Looking Wolf Reibach, a Kalapuya Native from the Grand Ronde Tribe of central Oregon. Jan also appears with his flute in a scene with Suzanne Marie Doyon and Floyd Red Crow Westerman. When producer Richard Doyon first heard Jan's music he was moved and was overjoyed when Jan offered his music for the movie. Hearing that Jan's uncle had recently passed on and that Jan had been very close to his uncle, Richard asked if Floyd Red Crow Westerman's character, originally called Great Elk, could be renamed in honor of Jan's uncle. Jan said he was honored, as was the tribe, and so the character's name was changed to Standing Elk. See more »

"Tillamook Treasure" is a pleasure to view. The story is imaginative, well told and suspenseful, building as the plot unfolds. The characters are well thought out and the tension and eventual resolution of conflict within the subject family is satisfying and upbeat. The location is a sight to behold, the photography stunning at times. This particular section of the Oregon coast is particularly well-suited for a treasure hunt! The acting is well done. The direction is to the point, without a lot of diversions and side plots emphasized. The comic relief provided by Richard Doyon, one of the producers and writers of the film, is unexpected and funny! This is a terrific family film! It's presentation in high definition added to my enjoyment as well.
