Join us along with our sponsor Cascade Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for our Enviornmental Film & Speaker Series for a conversation about the film “Gather” on Thursday, December 2 at 7 PM. “Gather” follows the stories of Natives on the front lines of a growing movement to reconnect with spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide. An indigenous chef embarks on an ambitious project to reclaim ancient food ways on the Apache reservation; in South Dakota a gifted Lakota high school student, raised on a buffalo ranch, is proving her tribes native wisdom through her passion for science; and a group of young men of the Yurok tribe in Northern California are struggling to keep their culture alive and rehabilitate the habitat of their sacred salmon. All these stories combine to show how the reclaiming and recovery of ancient food ways is a way forward for Native Americans to bring back health and vitality to their people.
A link to preview the film will be sent out prior to the zoom webinar for you to watch at your convenience. The film will not be shown in the webinar to allow for more time for participants to discuss the film with panelists and other participants. Register in advance for this webinar. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
