Film and Discussion: PROMISED LAND
Saturday June 29, 2019 ~ 1:30 - 4:30 PM
SDI Offices ~ 2025 112th Ave NE, Bellevue WA 98004
How can we companion with those whose heartbreak is connected to loss of land and loss of communal identity?
How can we companion in solidarity with the indigenous peoples whose land we inhabit?
Please join us at the SDI Bellevue, Washington offices for a special engagement and screeening of the film PROMISED LAND.
PROMISED LAND is a social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they've long been denied. In following their story, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty.
We'll be hosting Sarah Salcedo, one of the filmmakers, during the discussion.
This event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome to help pay for the cost of showing the film.
