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) to follow.
Hosted at the Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton St., Portland.
