Subversives: Gather, with Sanjay Rawal and Alex Meillier

Event Date: 

Tuesday, March 2, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement among Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty, all while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide. Gather follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona) as he works to open an Indigenous café that doubles as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota) who conducts landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California) working diligently to save the Klamath River.

The Carsey-Wolf Center is delighted to welcome director Sanjay Rawal and editor Alex Meillier for a virtual Q&A with Greg Johnson, director of the Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion, and Public Life.
