United by Water film screening

Saturday, July 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Program Description: The Museum is excited to screen this locally produced tribal documentary, directed by Derrick LaMere, which depicts the canoe journey of some modern-day Plateau tribal communities to Kettle Falls, Washington, the fishing site of their ancestors, for the first time in nearly 80 years. The 56-minute film brings to life the re-connection with tribal traditions and to the Columbia River which once was so integral to their way of life. United by Water highlights a community journey of discovery, and the importance of returning salmon to historic habitats as well as raising awareness on the overall health of the river for future generations. *Free parking available on the Museum’s campus.

Cost: $5, suggested donation

When: 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.

Location: Museum’s Eric A. Johnston Auditorium

Limit: 170, first-come, first-served
