Native Wisdom film up for Best Documentary

We’re excited that our film Native Wisdom: The Peoples of Eastern Oregon has been nominated for best documentary at the 45th Annual American Indian Film Festival. Congratulations to the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indians and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. We worked closely the Tribes to develop these programs. We hope this film reflects the reality of the affects of climate on Native culture through the First Foods – salmon, game, roots and berries.
