Native Heritage Film Series

The new award-winning documentary What Was Ours is the story of an Eastern Shoshone tribal elder and Vietnam veteran and two young members of the Arapahoe tribe who travel to the underground archives of Chicago’s Field Museum to recover and reclaim sacred ancestral objects. Along the way, they attempt to learn how the artifacts vanished in the first place, and what it might mean to get them back. This incredible film will be shown on Human Rights Day, and the event is endorsed by the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force. Jane Fritz of The Idaho Mythweaver leads an audience discussion after each screening.
