FoodShare screening of Gather

November 27th 2020. All day
Join FoodShare's Community Growing team for a free online screening of Gather, a documentary that weaves together personal narrative and archival footage to tell an important story about food justice and Indigenous food sovereignty.

About the Film: “Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food, 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.”
