In the second evening of the Sacred Places program, the David Brower Center and Sacred Land Film Project consider diverse cultural definitions of security. Following a screening of selections from Standing on Sacred Ground, Caleen Sisk, Spiritual Leader and Tribal Chief of the Winnemem Wintu, will be in conversation with Sacred Land’s Toby McLeod. Together, they will explore the Winnemem Wintu’s fight against the enlargement of the Shasta Dam and ask how our society can prioritize environmental protection as a key component of our shared security.

Arrive early to peruse offerings from Heyday Books and News from Native California with Lindsie Bear in the Hazel Wolf Gallery.
