Woodland Cultural Centre: Teióia’ks iakwateró:roks “We watch movies” Film Series – The Gift by Gary Farmer

October 24 @ 7:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

This short documentary examines the role of corn in the lives of Indigenous peoples in the Americas. Before colonization, corn was widely used as a beverage, a food staple, an oil, and a ceremonial object. It was respected and revered as a critical part of creation. This film explores the powerful bond and spiritual relationship that continues to exist between people and corn.

Combining interviews, dance, and song, The Gift captures the traditional, spiritual, economic, and political importance of this sacred plant.

This online gathering is a chance for us to watch movies together, even when we can’t go to the movies or to an in person film screening.

Make your popcorn at home and cozy up with us every other month for this ongoing series.
