Registration is closed.
Gather is an intimate look at the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political, and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide.
Gather, by acclaimed director Sanjay Rawl, follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona), opening an indigenous café as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota), conducting landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California), trying to save the Klamath River. The film is a New York Times Critics Pick.
We’ll be joined after the film by Chef Craig for a Q&A.
Nephi Craig is the founder of the Native American Culinary Association, a network of Native cooks, chefs, scholars, farmers, and community members devoted to the development and preservation of Native American foodways. He recently launched Café Gozhóó, a restaurant and nutritional recovery clinic under the aegis of the Rainbow Treatment Center.
