Celebrate World Food Day with SFS!
October 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In celebration of World Food Day, Slow Food Springfield will be hosting the virtual screening of the film, Gather: The Fight to Revitalize Native Food Ways on Friday, Oct. 16 @7:00 p.m. There is no charge to attend.
Free tickets are available from Story Spaces.
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.
