Native America Calling: Personal stories of traditional food connections
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Monday, November 9, 2020

The makers of the new film “Gather” assert that Native food rights are human rights and food helps keep Native people connected to culture.

The film tells personal stories of food warriors from the White Mountain Apache, Yurok and Lakota nations that exemplify the importance of maintaining Indigenous foods in the face of centuries of colonial efforts to break that connection. The film, directed by Sanjay Rawal, is a New York Times Critic’s Pick.
