PRAYERS FOR OUR PLANET featuring a screening of THIS LIVING SALISH SEA, June 10, 1-4:00pm
June 10, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0
All are invited to join our Indigenous guests at Prayers for Our Planet June 10th from 1-4 PM at the Castle Theatre at 185 Columbia Ave. in Castlegar. This timely event is framed to raise our spirits and awareness and will feature inspirational talks and prayers led by our Sinixt guests from the Colville Confederated Tribes Reserve, a big Drum from Inchelium, Washington, called Burnaby Island and an exceptional film, entitled This Living Salish Sea, by Sarama. Speakers include Sinixt Liaison Shelly Boyd, Billie Jo Bray, Rick and Linda Desautel, and Alfredo Labro-Wolf.
The film explores the living treasures of the Salish Sea on our BC West Coast and the Powerful undercurrents of Resistance to the corporate fossil fuel agenda that threatens it. Exploring the rich bio-diversity of our local waters, diver and environmental activist, Sarama shows us the ecosystem we are trying to protect from inappropriate industrial development. Glorious footage and talks with environmentalists, scientists and Indigenous people reveal the evolving story of our Salish Sea.
A Sinixt led ceremony will also precede the event at 10 AM at 1351 Elkview Trail, Castlegar and everyone is welcome to attend.
