Heritage Park and Cultural Center will host a screening of the PBS documentary film “In the Light of Reverence” by filmmakers Christopher Mcleod and Malinda Maynor on Friday, March 18th at 6:30 PM inside the Indian Temple Mound Museum. This event is part of the Downtown Art Walk and is free and open to the public.
Devils Tower. The Four Corners. Mount Shasta. All places of extraordinary beauty — and impassioned controversy — as Indians and non-Indians struggle to co-exist with very different ideas about how the land should be used. For Native Americans, the land is sacred and akin to the world's greatest cathedrals. For others, the land should be used for industry and recreation. Narrated by Peter Coyote and Tantoo Cardinal (Metis), In the Light of Reverence is a beautifully rendered account of the struggles of the Lakota in the Black Hills, the Hopi in Arizona and the Wintu in California to protect their sacred sites. An Independent Television Service (ITVS) & Native American Public Telecommunications (NAPT) Co-presentation and a Television Race Initiative (TRI) Selection. Running time approximately 1 hour.
We would love to see you downtown. Before and after the film visit the artists, craftspeople, and musicians along Highway 98 during the Kick-off Party for the Downtown Art Walk. These are held every third Friday of the month throughout the year. Come see what is happening downtown!
