About this Event
Exclusive Seattle Screening of Nez Perce Film:
Join us for an exceptional in-person event at Majestic Bay Theatres in Ballard, Seattle, WA. Eva's Wild, Majestic Bay Theatres and Emerald Water Anglers are thrilled to present the Exclusive Seattle Theatrical Screening of the thought-provoking film "Covenant of the Salmon People" - a 60-minute documentary portrait of the Nez Perce Tribe, as they continue to carry out their ancient promise to protect Chinook Salmon.
The film explores the intertwined fate of the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce), Chinook Salmon, and the landscape from which both evolved. The Nez Perce people are the oldest documented civilization in North America, with archaeological sites along Idaho's Salmon River dating back 16,500 years. Today the Tribe is facing the extirpation of their most prized salmon species despite decades of recovery efforts. The widespread construction of dams across their Traditional lands have continued to challenge salmon recovery.
The only option remaining for the Tribe, is the breach of four dams on the lower Snake River. Will the Federal Government take charge of the situation or sit idly while this iconic species vanishes from their home waters?
Tickets are free, but are limited, so be sure to secure your spot for this not-to-be-missed event!
