Presenter Bio

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.

Presentation Description

Join the Deep Water Initiative and the graduate program of Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies for a screening of the award-winning film Gather as part of the 2021 Religion & Ecology Online Summit. This year's Summit is titled, Indigenous Lifeways, Cosmologies & Ecology: Connecting to Past, Restor(y)ing Present & Future. Indigenous approaches to biocultural stewardship and sacred sites offer insights into the inquiry of Religion and Ecology, which explores how spiritual beliefs and practices affect the natural world. The film Gather is a beautifully personal portrayal of this theme, in its demonstration of Indigenous approaches to food sovereignty. This screening is open to all registered Summit participants.
