Gather – Film screening at the Elks Theatre

January 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join NHI for a special film screening of Gather at the Elks Theatre, with opening remarks by Indigenous food sovereignty advocate Twila Cassadore.

Gather is an intimate portrait of a growing movement amongst Indigenous Americans to reclaim their spiritual and cultural identities through obtaining sovereignty over their ancestral food systems, while battling against the historical trauma brought on by centuries of genocide.

Registration via Elks Theater

Gather follows the stories of natives on the frontlines 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 tribe’s 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 foodways is a way forward for Native Americans to bring back health and vitality to their people.

This program was made possible by Arizona Humanities.
