Join us for a community viewing of “Gather”; this film explores topics around the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty and land stewardship. The event will include a panel with BIPOC researchers from Central State University (Dr. Brandy Phipps) and The Ohio State University (Dr. John Low), along with community organizers Ty and Masami Smith of Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio (NAICCO).
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.
