7pm: Truthsgiving

November 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for the Alaska premier of Southern Poverty Law Center’s short film,”Teaching Indigenous: The Enslavement of Our Ancestors” directed by Iñupiaq filmmaker Howdice Brown III, produced by See Stories, and Coffee and Quaq.

The film documents the nearly unknown and yet enormous role that enslavement of indigenous peoples played in the foundation of the United States, from Kodiak to New England, and from the Southern States to the West Coast.

The viewing will be followed by a filmmakers Q and A, and a one-of-a-kind performance from AKU-MATU.

AKU-MATU, is the stage persona of Iñupiaq rap, hip-hop and performance artist Allison Akootchook Warden. Warden has performed all over the world, engaging her audiences with stories and themes of the Iñupiaq, paying homage to traditions and addressing contemporary issues.

Presented by See Stories, Coffee & Quaq, and Channel Films.

Kids are welcome, but the film includes content about the enslavement of Indigenous Peoples, which parents should be aware of.

Tickets cost $15 each.
