Join us for an online screening of two films celebrate the efforts of Oregon’s Indigenous scientists, tribal elders, and culture keepers to preserve ecosystems where they gather first foods and medicines. The films, from Native nonprofit Wisdom of the Elders, demonstrate how Traditional Ecological Knowledge is influencing resource and wildlife management, giving hope to a changing world.

Conversation with filmmakers Tim Keenan Burgess (Paiute, Shoshone) and Kunu Dittmer-Bearchum (Northern Cheyenne/Ho-Chunk Nation) and guests from the films will start these events followed by an online screening of the film.

This event is hosted by the Multnomah County Library and is in connection with Confluence’s November 17th talk with Braiding Sweetgrass Author Robin Wall Kimmerer.
