Thanks to all for the excellent screening of “Inhabitants” last month and for the fantastic follow up conversation on goat-based solutions. It’s great to see community conversations in action!

We’re proud to present our next film, “Gather” on Sunday, November 20th from 1:30pm to 3:00pm, with an optional follow up discussion until 4:00pm, at the Blanchard Room at the Mary L Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th Street, Davis, CA. We hope you’ll stay for sharing and learning together!

“Gather” follows the stories of Native Americans on the frontlines of a growing movement to reconnect with spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide. A chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation 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 on the Klamath River. 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.

“Gather” was made in partnership with the First Nations Development Institute, a leading Native nonprofit based in Colorado.

First Nations Development Institute recognizes that accessing healthy food is a challenge for many Native American children and families. Without access to healthy food, a nutritious diet and good health are out of reach. To increase access to healthy food, we support tribes and Native communities as they build sustainable food systems that improve health, strengthen food security and increase the control over Native agriculture and food systems. First Nations provides this assistance in the form of financial and technical support, including training materials, to projects that address agriculture and food sectors in Native communities.
