Sears Auditorium

The Cherokee Word For Water details the true story of Wilma Mankiller's efforts to bring water lines to rural regions of the Cherokee Nation. It features the ways in which this movement grew throughout the community and inspired members of the Cherokee Nation to remember the power of gadugi (working together) and, in the process, push back against legacies of colonization that led members of the community to feel powerless in the face of poverty and hardship. After a screening of the film, there will be a moderated discussion.

PLEASE NOTE: Space may be limited and admission is not guaranteed. Arrive early to secure a spot and note that seats may not be reserved for others as it is first-come-first-serve. PATH credit will only be issued to those who remain for the duration of the event.
