The Clarke Presents Dinner and a Movie
The Clarke Museum is delighted to be able to host a showing of Gather: The Fight to Revitalize Our Native Foodways, a documentary on indigenous food sovereignty directed by Sanjay Rawal and featuring the Yurok Tribe of Northern California, along with other first nations. 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. Attendees can watch the movie on an online platform that supports audience discussion during and after the film, when we’ll be hosting a panel discussion. The panel will include Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy, Chair of Native American Studies at HSU, as well as other local tribal representatives. Alongside the film, we're once again offering two tasty dinner options from Brett Shuler Fine Catering (one meat, one vegetarian), plus fresh popcorn – because who doesn’t like popcorn with their movies? Dinners will be available for pickup from the museum from 4-5pm and the screening will start at 6pm. The panel discussion will run from 7:30-8:30 pm and we’re aiming to record this part for later viewing by anyone who’s unable to watch it live.
