Double Feature: Gather & Honor Thy Mother – smARTfilms: Indigenous Filmmakers/Indigenous Lives
Past Event

Join us for five weeks of films featuring works by Indigenous storytellers from around the world. This series presents ways of being that navigate tradition, modernity, myth, cold reality, humor, and persistence in a world still reckoning with its colonial hangover.


Gather (USA)

2020 | 1h14m | G

Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide.

Honor Thy Mother (USA)

2021 | 31m | G

Honor Thy Mother: the Untold Story of Aboriginal Women and Their Indipino Children is the untold story of Aboriginal women from Canada and Native women from tribes in Washington and Alaska who migrated to Bainbridge Island, the traditional territory of the Suquamish people, in the early 1940s. Many, just released from the Indian Residential Schools, fell in love in the berry fields and married Filipino immigrants. Despite having left their homeland and possible disenfranchisement from their tribes, they settled on the Island to raise their mixed heritage (Indipino) children. Produced by the Indipino Community of Bainbridge Island and Vicinity, a Washington State non-profit, and Stourwater Pictures.
