Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement among Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty, all while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide. Gather follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona) as he works to open an Indigenous café that doubles as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota) who conducts landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California) working diligently to save the Klamath River.
Director Sanjay Rawal and editor Alexander Meillier will join Capps Center Director Greg Johnson for a discussion of the making of Gather. Please note this event will not include a screening. Registered participants will receive a link to screen Gather two days in advance of the event.
This virtual event will take place via Zoom. The event is free but prior registration is required. Registration will close one hour before the event.
