The International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management, Denver American Indian Commission and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science are pleased to present another year of programming from the Indigenous Film & Arts Festival. Join us the 2nd Wednesday of the month for a film screening and discussion.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 9th - 6:30pm (doors at 6pm) for our screening of Weaving Worlds, with audience discussion led by Navajo weaver Lynda Teller Pete, in the Museum's Phipps Theater, 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver 80205. Please use the Evening Entrance on the EAST side of the Museum. Parking at the Museum is free.
Weaving Worlds, from director Bennie Klain (Diné), presents a compelling and intimate portrait of Navajo weavers as they work to preserve the cultural integrity of their weaving traditions in the face of an increasing globalization. The film examines the connections of the weavers to the sheep, wool, water and land; their often strained relationship with reservation traders; the commodification of their art; and their struggles to protect their intellectual property. In English and Navajo, w/ English subtitles. (TricksterFilms LLC and Independent Television Service in association with Native American Public Telecommunications, 2008, 57 min.).
