A Community Virtual Screening of the Documentary “Gather” Coming in May

Join The Cottonwood School and Confluence for a virtual screening of the documentary film Gather


gatherGather 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.

The week of May 10th Cottonwood will share a viewing link for families and other interested community members to watch the film at home, followed by two panel talks May 18th with members of the cast, Nephi Craig and Sammy Gensaw:

  • A daytime panel geared towards students (exact time and details to be announced soon) and
  • A late afternoon panel for adults and community members, hosted by our partner organization


To register for this event at 4pm, May 18th, follow this link.
