Wind River Screening and Discussion

Detroit HIstorical Museum
5401 Woodward Avenue,
Detroit, MI 48202
Description

Set on a present-day reservation, Wind River introduced mainstream American audiences to an epidemic plaguing native communities in North America today - missing and murdered indigenous women. The 2017 film looks at the complexities of life in Indian country today and the struggles to overcome more than two centuries of forced assimilation and eradication of indigenous peoples, cultures and traditions. After the screening, Eric Hemenway, director of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Department of Repatriation, Archives and Records, will host a group discussion about the film and moderate a panel discussion that will provide more in-depth information regarding missing native women in Michigan.

This event is co-sponsored by the Detroit Historical Society.
