Screening & Panel Discussion

Join us for a screening and panel discussion of "Inhabitants: Indigenous Perspectives on Restoring our World." In this thought-provoking and enlightening documentary, we journey through the diverse landscapes and cultures of Indigenous communities around the world. Through their eyes and voices, we gain unique insights into their profound connection to the Earth, their time-honored traditions, and their innovative approaches to restoring and preserving our precious planet. Join us as we explore the wisdom and resilience of Indigenous peoples, offering a renewed perspective on how we can all contribute to a more sustainable and harmonious world. We are honored to have Michael Kotutwa Johnson, an Indigenous Hopi Farmer, and Spring Alaska Schreiner, an indigenous agriculturalist and farmer based in Tumalo join us for a discussion following the screening, where they will share their knowledge and insights on these crucial topics.
