We invite you to join us in this opportunity to observe, learn and celebrate the ways Indigenous peoples across our country are building resiliency, restoration, and recovery of their culture through food sovereignty. Celebrating indigenous peoples’ survival and resilience is essential to acknowledging a fuller truth than that of the myth / partial-truth / settler perspective of the first Thanksgiving story during this holiday season of gratitudeScreening will be available today, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, until December 13th. The film will be made available to all as we believe its message is valuable to people of all ages and backgrounds.Link to watch Gather :illumine.vids.io/videos/449cd7b51019e1c8cd/gather-aeroPassword: Gather2020
