AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy

Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day! 🙌 In collaboration with the Office of Sustainability and Multicultural Student Services Center, the AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy presents a FREE screening of the 2020 documentary, Gather: The Fight to Revitalize Our Native Foodways.

Request film viewing link: https://bit.ly/3diwmkX

Learn more about the film: https://gather.film/

Gather is an intimate portrait of a growing movement among Indigenous Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities—through obtaining sovereignty over their ancestral food systems—while battling the historical trauma brought on by centuries of genocide. This documentary beautifully weaves personal stories with historical footage and presents the stories through the lens of Indigenous community members. Gather also received a coveted Critic's Pick from the New York Times this month! Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a celebratory time dedicated to Indigenous resilience, beauty, survival, and strength—and we believe the film Gather embodies these values in a meaningful way.

Screening Opportunity: Please join us in viewing this documentary via our university link and password! The film will be available from October 12th-19th for you to view at your convenience. Fill out this Google Form to receive the link: https://forms.gle/uDsk82S4VSts7dDa9

American Indian/Alaska Native youth between the ages of 15 and 24 are the most at-risk population in the United States. They face serious disparities in physical and mental health, education, and juvenile justice treatment. Combined with the coronavirus pandemic, these disparities have created a huge public health crisis for tribal communities. On Thursday, July 16, at 3 p.m. Eastern time, our Subcommittee for Indigenous Peoples of the United States will host a hearing on Native youth perspectives on mental health and healing.

It's a shame Mount Morris City Council Member and another man steal personal property from an address I lived at. Even though the land bank owns the property, there was never a sheriff put out. My family has lived in that home for 22 years. The last time we tried to get our personal property with verbal agreement from the land bank two Mount Morris Police Officers pulled their guns out on my two family members as far as feeling up and down on a minor. We won't stop speaking up for ourselves. We need the media involved there are videos of these incidents. Share to let our community know what has been going on and keep sharing till Media can get involved. Thanks!
My family would like to thank Nick, the staff and all those involved with this program. Our daughter Olivia learned a lot and really enjoyed her time with the program. It was a pleasure meeting you all tonight.
