“(Re)Counting (Wo)Man, by Jennifer Lisa Vest, 51 min
This mixed media production about Two-Spiritedness and the Afro-Indigenous Experience. Based on a one-person show that recounts and counts stories and traditions of indigeneity, sexuality, tribal sovereignty, queerness, history, anti-black racism, and strategies of survival.
“We speak for the Forest” Zephyr Elise, 1hr
This award winning film highlights an inter-generational conversation (ages 16-70’s) with local Skokomish tribal members and other community members in Mason County, WA. They speak of the forests’ importance- culturally, environmentally, and beyond.
