 Dancing Salmon Home  

“Best Documentary Feature,” 2012 Annual American Indian Film Festival

This welcoming event offers warmth and hospitality to Indigenous leaders who have come to UCR, and offers an opening space for discussion around colonization, sacred space, protocol and ceremony, and other Indigenous issues the film raises.

 With special guests Chief Caleen Sisk of the Winnemum Wintu

and Jack Gray, Maori choreographer and Visiting Assistant Professor of Dance, UCR

The film, in which “A Northern California Tribe reunites with their Chinook Salmon relatives in New Zealand,” shows relations between Maori and Winnemum Wintu people around attempts to repatriate salmon to the Winnemum Wintu following the construction of the Shasta Dam.
