"Home from School" at the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival

The 12th Annual Chagrin Documentary Film Festival is showing "Home from School: The Children of Carlisle". This film takes a compelling look into the troubled history Indian Boarding Schools from the 1880s, which used brutal tactics of assimilation on young indigenous children who had been forcebly removed from their families, communities and cultures. In the decades that followed, it was discovered that a shocking amount of these children never returned home. This powerful film documents the incredible spirit of the Northern Arapaho Tribe who, after decades of red tape and generational trauma, finally bring the children that died at these horrible schools home.

Protect, Respect, and Restore Snoqualmie Tribe Ancestral Lands

The Ancestral Lands Movement seeks to spread awareness of the Snoqualmie people who have lived in the southern Salish Sea since time immemorial and share the significance of these lands and provide information on how people can help the Tribe in respecting, restoring, and protecting these lands.

As the Salish Sea region has grown in population, the Snoqualmie Tribe’s ancestral lands have been heavily impacted by recreation. This impact is especially apparent at the popular trails in the Snoqualmie corridor area where increased visitation has resulted in a degradation of the land.
