Dancing Salmon Home Documentary

Time: 7:00 pm


Join us for a screening of "Dancing Salmon Home," a 66-minute documentary that received the Best Documentary Feature award at the 2012 American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco.

The film follows the Winnemem Wintu tribe of Northern California on a historic journey across generations and oceans. From the ancestral McCloud River below Mt. Shasta, 28 tribal members travel to New Zealand to meet their long-lost Chinook salmon relatives, which have been missing from their river for 65 years. Along the way, they hold four days of ceremony beside New Zealand's Rakaia River, forging enduring bonds with the Maori people of the region, sharing a message of respect for the natural world, and launching plans to bring their salmon home.

The film brings to light seldom-heard details of the treatment of the native peoples of what is now California, during and after the Gold Rush period.

Additional Public Info: Donations will be appreciated to assist in costs of travel, lodging, food, etc. for the Winnemem Wintu Tribe.
