"Two Rivers" screening & Indigenous People's Day

Friday, October 12, 2018

In recognition of Indigenous People's Day, The Collective is showing the documentary "Two Rivers." How can we learn about the history and presence of Native Americans in our region? We'll watch an award-winning documentary film, "Two Rivers," about how a community in Washington state did this. Then let's share ideas about what we can do together here in Lafayette. Free and open to all. Sponsored by Right Relationship Boulder and the Lafayette Cultural Arts Commission. Facilitated by Jerilyn DeCoteau (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) and Ava Hamilton (Arapaho) and Paula Palmer.

Who are the Native peoples who have lived and are now living on the land that we call home? How can we learn the real history of this place? What would right relationship with Native peoples look like in Lafayette? What steps can we start taking in that direction? 

The one-hour documentary film “Two Rivers” tells the story of a rural community in Washington state that initiated a process of dialogue between Native and non-Native residents of the area. As the non-Natives learned the real history of the land and its consequences for the region’s original inhabitants, they undertook some very significant actions toward reconciliation and healing. We can be challenged and inspired by their example, and begin to take steps toward right relationship with Native peoples in our own community. 

Facilitated by Ava Hamilton (Arapaho), Jerilyn DeCoteau (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) and Paula Palmer.
Free and open to the public.
