As part of our ongoing commitment to local food sovereignty, Hope’s Harvest RI is honored to partner with Rhode Island’s only museum centered on the indigenous peoples of our area, the Tomaquag Museum, located in Exeter RI, to share and discuss “Gather,” one of the season’s most talked-about documentaries.
A New York Time’s Critic’s Pick, “Gather” takes an intimate look at Native Americans across the United States reclaiming cultural, political, and spiritual identities through the food sovereignty movement. Join us for a screening and discussion panel with local indigenous educators and leaders to discuss the film and how people are fighting for food sovereignty in our own communities.
As an Indigenous cultural education center, the Tomaquag Museum creates experiences and promotes thoughtful dialog to transform and broaden people’s perspectives, attitudes, and knowledge of Indigenous cultures. Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to learn and engage in a conversation about food justice in our community and across the nation.
