Gather: Community Screening and Discussion
Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join CUESA for an online community screening of the film Gather: The Fight to Revitalize Our Native Foodways, followed by a Zoom discussion with the film’s makers.
Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide. Gather follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona), opening an indigenous café as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota), conducting landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California), trying to save the Klamath river.
The screening will be followed by an online discussion with:
- Sanjay Rawal, Director of Gather
- A-dae Briones, Executive Producer of Gather, and Director of Programs at First Nations Development Institute
- Sammy Gensaw III, Yurok Native and Director of Ancestral Guard
