Free Virtual Screening of the new film, "Gather" - Nov 22

Event Dates: 
11/22/20

Sun. Nov. 22nd, 4:00 pm Free Virtual Screening of the new film, "Gather" – in honor of Native American Heritage Month and hosted by Edible Madison! "Gather" explores 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. For centuries, U.S. government and military policy worked to separate indigenous peoples from traditional lands. This separated them rom thousands of years of cultural and spiritual relationships with that land. A significant aspect of these relationships was incredibly deep ecological knowledge of local food systems. The poor health outcomes in Indian Country aren’t merely a result of poverty but, rather, of centuries of economic and government policy that targets their right to live in a traditional, environmentally-balanced manner. Native food rights are human rights. Join us in supporting this new film and witnessing the powerful stories of resilience and renaissance happening throughout Native food systems.
